svnadmin stumbles on multiple directory levels..

According to the FAQ:

"It depends upon the projects involved. If the projects are related, and
are likely to share data, then it's best to create one repository with
several subdirectories like this:

   $ svnadmin create /repo/svn
   $ svn mkdir file:///repo/svn/projA
   $ svn mkdir file:///repo/svn/projB
   $ svn mkdir file:///repo/svn/projC

Attempting to do this - see below (note that /usr/local/src exists, but
repo/svn does not exist at the moment. I am running (more or less) RedHat
7.3 with the most current (??) subversion sucked from tigris a few minutes
ago with svn update (and config/make/install)

This may be more or less the same problem that mkdir has when you try to
create more than one directory level in one command.
e.g., [root@hoho0 svn_new]# mkdir whap/whop
      mkdir: cannot create directory `whap/whop': No such file or directory
      [root@hoho0 svn_new]#

[root@hoho0 src]# svnadmin create /usr/local/src/repo/svn
svn: No such file or directory
svn: svn_io_dir_make: can't create directory '/usr/local/src/repo/svn'

Making the initial directory seems to help

[root@hoho0 src]# mkdir repo
[root@hoho0 src]# svnadmin create /usr/local/src/repo/svn
[root@hoho0 src]#
