No, but I finally sorted out the idea that some things are recursive by
default and others aren't. Now it makes sense.

I did, I did. But we newbies don't always remember everything on the
first pass ... or even the third :-). Thanks for the help and

I got it to work, but it ended up taking a little more than that. It
worked better for me to check out the empty project, then use add for
everything. Here's what I ended up with (I set up a script for this,
so I could try different approaches and make mistakes -- it's a small
project so deleting and retrying was OK):

     svnadmin.exe create --fs-type fsfs h:/svnrepos/project
     svn checkout file:///h:/svnrepos/project .
     svn add --non-recursive trunk/
     svn add --non-recursive trunk/html/
     svn add --non-recursive trunk/html/images/
     ... [more directories]
     svn add --targets allfiles.txt
     svn commit -m "Initial setup"
     svn list --verbose -R trunk/
