Two suggestions:

 1) Touch the CVS files so that both repositories look like a single
    one. Administration files of CVS (CVS/*) are really simple, this
    should be no problem.
    I converted in the past a RCS based repository into a CVS one by
    using such tricks and converted this via cvs2svn into a Subversion
    repository.

 2) Create two separate Subversion repositories and merge both using
    svnadmin dump/load together with svndumpfilter. See
    http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn-book.html#svn.reposadmin.maint.tk.svndumpfilter
    Nevertheless svndumpfilter is probably only useful to split
    repositories, not for merging.

I suggest solution 1)
