Confused on location of /vendor top level directory for vendor branches

I'm trying my first vendor import, and need some help figuring out the
correct paths for my file:// repository locations. I've tried to follow
the subversion book recommendations as faithfully as possible, but my
vendor imports don't seem to get committed in such a way that working copy
checkouts bring them down.

Here's my laptop's layout:

repository: /home/myuser/svn/acme (/conf /dav /db ...)
import skel: /home/myuser/software/acmeimport/ (branches/ tags/ trunk/)
working copy: /home/myuser/software/acme/
vendor drop to import:
/home/myuser/software/Products/AcMe-beta1/ (dir1/ dir2/ ...)

My goal is to have a vendor branch that I can use svn_load_dirs.pl to pull
in periodic release shapshots, and merge them to my own customizations,
which will be a complete version of largely the same code, in the root
(trunk) of the acme repository.

I've been trying to import that with the following command:

$ svn import /home/myuser/Products/AcMe-beta1 \
> file:///home/myuser/svn/acme/vendor/acme/current \ -m 'tagging
> AcMe-beta1'

Which is the closest agreement I can determine with the 'vendor branch'
section of the subversion book.

Can someone clarify why I don't use 'trunk' in that path:

$ svn import /home/myuser/Products/AcMe-beta1 \
> file:///home/myuser/svn/acme/trunk/vendor/acme/current \ -m 'tagging
> AcMe-beta1'

I'm not sure what having /vendor on the same level as /branches /tags
/trunk will give me. How would I get that into my checkouts?

If I'm wrong about the interpretation, and the second version of the
command is the correct one, I would be grateful if someone could confirm
that, along with any other information relevant to this kind of layout.
Thanks.
