In your .subversion/config,

[miscellany]
use-commit-times = yes

This is not the default of Subversion because for build systems it is  
better for modified dates to reflect local change events - you want a  
file to be 'newer' and trigger a rebuild even if it changed by going  
back in history. I don't know whether this matters for CCL.
