You might try the "in-place import" trick described here:
http://subversion.tigris.org/project_faq.html#in-place-import

By using svn add instead of svn import, you can selectively tell
Subversion which files and directories you would like to have under
version control. In fact, I hardly ever use svn import any more. I
usually use this technique instead.
