How to fix missing or not locked directory?

I am using subversion to give revision control to the files generated from an EDA tool that I use. I have a directory, with several subdirectories, that are generated by the EDA tool. They have all been added to the repository. While using the tool, one of the subdirectories was deleted and then recreated. Now here is the problem.
The new subdirectory contains the new data that I want to update the repository with. But the directory is not part of the working copy because it was deleted and recreated. IE, There is no .svn subdirectory in it. If I try to add the directory back to the repository, this is what I get:
$ svn add gnd_esd_30u/layout/
$ svn commit gnd_esd_30u/layout/
I don't want to do a svn update gnd_esd_30u/layout becuase it would overwrite all the changes that were made. So how do I keep this new subdirectory with all the new files in it, and add it back into the subversion repository?
