Yes, that's right.

That should work.

The other approach that initially occurred to me was to clean the directory so there are no unversioned files ("make clean" perhaps), then build the software ("make"), then copy the output of "svn status" into an editor and massage it a bit to turn it into something you can hand to "svn propset svn:ignore --file". Though this would have to be done on a per-directory basis, so if there are many directories involved this may be impractical and a script as you suggest may do better.
