Is editing the global-ignores setting in the Subversion configuration file,
as already suggested by Thorsten in an earlier post, not an option?

That's currently the only unversioned place where ignore settings can
be configured. See

Can the build system output its files into a subdirectory with a known
name which can then be ignored?

It seems your use case is rather exceptional. I've rarely seen the need
to ignore arbitrary files with names that aren't known in advance.
However, it's clear that the current ignore system isn't well suited
for this case, so maybe we should extend Subversion in some way to
account for this.
