Thanks Ryan, that does exactly what I need.

(Here's an extract from its README, in case anyone else needs something
like this:)

This Perl script copies one Subversion location or set of locations to
another, in the same way as svn copy.

svncopy --pin-externals (or svncopy --tag) will update any unversioned
svn:externals in the destination tree to contain the current version of
the directory listed in the svn:externals definition. This effectively
pins the reference to the current version, and is the behaviour you want
for tagging.
