Normally you create a tag by running 'svn cp [-r X] URL1 URL2'.

If you want to build a tree of very specific versions of files, then you
have to do it in a working copy. Use 'svn up -r X foo.c' on each file
and directory, then 'svn copy working-copy URL'.

Discussed here, in the 'tags' section of chapter 4:

'svn cp -r X URL1 URL2', or 'svn cp -r X URL working-copy; svn commit'
