Copy your RCS *,v files into a directory structure that looks like a
CVS repository. For example:
        export CVSROOT=/tmp/fakecvs
        mkdir -p /tmp/fakecvs/path/to/project/dir
        cp /path/to/project/dir/RCS/*,v /tmp/fakecvs/path/to/project/dir
        ... [do this for all your RCS files]

Then use a tool like cvs2svn (cvs2svn.tigris.org) to import the "CVS"
repository into Subversion.
