1) persuade the admin to a create an empty /usr/local/bin/.svn folder
and give you write access to it ...

2) in the repository create an empty folder for your files

3) check this folder out to a temporary folder and then copy the
contents of the created .svn folder over to /usr/local/bin/.svn

4) now you should be able to svn add your files and commit.

Beware: not tested as I have no access to a linux box right now.
