Am I correct in reading your question as

- Is there some way to use a version control system to store files
  outside of version control?

I'm sorry, but it sounds like you are just about to create more problems
for you... why not simply store the files in question on a windows share
or something similar?

When I've run into similar situations I've usually put the files on a
shared disc and then set up the build system to pull in the correct
files as needed.
