recursive add

Question about recursive svn add

svn add works recursively when adding a non-versioned folder. But if
the folder is already under version control, and new files have been
added deep inside, then "svn add mydir" won't find them. Instead it
just returns that svn mydir is already under version control.
I have to run svn status mydir to show which files are non-versioned in
the hierarchy, and then I have to add each new file separately by
specifying the full path.

Is there a way to make svn add do this automatically? I usually use
TortoiseSVN which behaves as I would expect, so I was surprised that the
command-line client didn't find the new files to be added.

This seems obvious, but I couldn't find any recent posts or specifics in
the manual.
