How about (completely untested):

$ svnadmin dump /srv/svn/projA | sed 's/^Node-path: /Node-path: \/projA/g' >
$ svnadmin dump /srv/svn/projB | sed 's/^Node-path: /Node-path: \/projB/g' >
$ svnadmin create /srv/svn/reposC
$ svnadmin load /srv/svn/reposC < /tmp/projA.svndump
$ svnadmin load /srv/svn/reposC < /tmp/projB.svndump

Make sure everything's OK, then delete/move the repositories as you like.

Or, perhaps easier, make a /projA folder in the root of the projA
repository then move everything from the root to that folder.
Do the same for projB. Then...

$ svnadmin create /srv/svn/reposC
$ svnadmin dump /srv/svn/projA | svnadmin load /srv/svn/reposC
$ svnadmin dump /srv/svn/projB | svnadmin load /srv/svn/reposC

As I said, completely untested.... but it's a start :-)
