check out on top of existing tree

How can I checkout ON TOP OF an existing dir structure?

Usage:
We have a *very* large vendor tree on a production server. I only want
to version a few files within it. So I copy the stuff I want into a
sparse version of the vendor tree, and import. No problem.

Now, how do I checkout on top of the full vendor tree?
$ cd $VENDOR_HOME
$ svn checkout https://.../vendor/trunk .
svn: Failed to add directory 'foo': object of the same name already exists

What's the right way to do this?
Phil
