You can't. The only thing 'svn cleanup' does is (1) execute left-
over journals within .svn/ areas and (2) remove lockfiles in .svn/
areas. The svn client cannot "heal" an .svn area in any other way.
If .svn/tmp/ is missing, or if .svn/entries is missing, then
the .svn/ area is dead. Destroy the dead directory and 'svn up' from
some parent to recreate it.
