You're trying to make an alias with spaces in it. Think of alias as
creating a new program/command/script/function:

alias my_add_hack="find . -name .svn -prune -o -print | xargs svn add"

... should work. (and it's a bit more picky about what it filters out)

PS - your first alias probably *did* work, you just didn't call it
correctly. doing:
$ 'svn add *'

would very likely have run the alias (depending on your shell). But that's
just nasty. ;)
