Excluding files from commit

Is there any way to set up a default so that when I commit all files alt-cmd-S that a list of files is, by default, excluded?

For example, my Makefile is under version control, and I want to change it to alter my local build environment, but not commit the changes to the repository in general.

    At present there is no way to do this. The normal solution is to have a makefile.original which is collectively versioned and then you duplicate that and remove the suffix and you use that locally... Admittedly this need comes up every so often... It would be nice to have a better solution. However, the solutions I could all think of would be a little too complex in terms of explaining things to the user...
