If you were following the mailing list you would see the answer to
exactly this question from Nick Gilbert. You have to move the files
somewhere else, commit, then move them back (and remember to add them to
the ignore list so that it doesn't happen again).

Once something is in the repository it is never ignored. That's a
feature of Subversion.

And having a one-stop-shop command to do the sequence above
(move/commit/replace/ignore) would be a huge amount of work for
something that is very rarely used and easily worked around.
