The default behaviour of subversion (and many version control systems) is to
ignore temporary and generated files such as libraries and intermediate
objects (like .o files). Usually the intended behaviour is to version the
source not the results of compiling or editing the source.

In subversion this is controlled by the general settings, if you search the
subversion config file for global-ignores (it is probably a comment by
default) you'll see a list of files including .so and .a, change the list to
suit your needs or you can try explicitly adding them on the command line.
The config file on unix is in ~/.subversion/config. On windows I'm not so
sure, but here is the reference in the redbook. Just search down a little for
the words global-ignores for more info.
