CVS behaves the same way.

In general, this is correct behaviour, as it reflects the time that
your filesystem changed.

If you update a source file from CVS/SVN, whether or not "make"
re-compiles any corresponding object file should depend upon when the
source file changed on your system, not when it changed in the
repository or on the developer's system.
