How to convert a regular file to a sym link?

From: Matt England <mengland_at_mengland.net>

I have files under svn control that we converted from a regular file to a soft link (as per ldconfig: http://www.die.net/doc/linux/man/man8/ldconfig.8.html ).

I want to force this change into subversion's control so that said file no longer comes up in a 'svn status' list.

Any suggestions?

The only thing I can think of right now is to 'svn revert', 'svn del', then 'svn add' the file after running my ldconfig (that creates the sym link) again. This seems rather cumbersome to do for every file.

Thanks for any help,
