You could use asvn (http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/contrib/

#    Description:
#    Archive SVN (asvn) will allow the recording of file types not
#    normally handled by svn. Currently this includes devices,
#    symlinks and file ownership/permissions.
#    Every file and directory has a 'file:permissions' property set and
#    every directory has a 'dir:devices' and 'dir:symlinks' for
#    recording the extra information.
#    Run this script instead of svn with the normal svn arguments.
Of course, svn now supports symlinks on *nix, so changes might be  
necessary to have asvn use the built-in support.  Not that using the  
pre-1.1.x technique would hurt I suppose.
