Why not just do this instead?

   $ cd your_regular_trunk_working_copy
   $ cp ../../../wherever/prom_load_file .
   $ svn add prom_load_file
   $ svn cp -m "Create Release 2.3 tag." . http://.../repos/tags/release-2.3
   $ svn revert prom_load_flie
   $ rm prom_load_file
   $ svn ls http://.../repos/tags/release-2.3/
   ...
   ...
   prom_load_file
   ...
   ...
   $
