How to create a link that works between OS X and Ubuntu

Hi everyone. I'm developing a program on Ubuntu 10.10. The directory in which my project lives is part of my PATH. The executable that is built is called 'autobot'.

 I type:

 ln autobot a

 (And my program runs correctly).

 svn add a
 svn propset svn:executable ON a
 svn ci -m "Create shortcut"

 Now on my OS X box, with the current directory set to the project directory, and with that directory also being a part of PATH (although it is not named identically to the Ubuntu one), I type:

 svn up

 And I get:

 -bash: /source/Autobot/autobotwiki/a: cannot execute binary file

 ls -l a gives me:

 -rwxrwxrwx 1 richard admin 55295 26 Apr 10:33 a

 The same thing happens if I create the link on OS X and try to run it under Ubuntu. So how do I do this?
