You need to set the properties.  If you have a "good" .svn/config
file then it will set the appropriate properties on new files when you
add them, but you'll have to set svn:ignore yourself.  You can do this
either before OR after commit, but I highly recommend before.
Normally I "svn add" my new directories before I add files to them
because that way it wont accidentally add files I dont want, like
Makefile.in, Makefile, .libs, .deps, etc.

Adding new directories is done infrequently enough that it's usually not a
big deal.
