You digress. Not a single one of the compiled libraries lives within the versioned directories. Please read the question before replying incorrectly. It has nothing to do with code. It has nothing to do with the build. Please ask for clarification if you do not understand. You gave a good suggestion with the force option. Then you wandered off to completely irrelevant ramblings. Should quit while you're ahead.

Statements like this make me believe that build system is broken. I would expect the svn switch like problems on nearly any SCM you use that has the ability to switch a single working copy (or workspace, client,
what-have-you) between branches. My knee jerk reaction in situations like this is to fix the build system.

Are you sure there is nothing you can do? Perhaps you can suggests a simple fix like moving the versioned class library to a location that is always versioned. For example, instead of referencing a class library that lives in a bin/ directory it is better to keep the class library in a lib/ directory instead. Build output goes in the unversioned bin/ directory and versioned resources go in the lib/ directory.
