If that doesn't work directly, a long shot might be to try rcs2cvs
first, then cvs2svn. Desperate times require desperate measures.

cvs2svn may work. That's nominally for CVS; I don't know if it will
work on RCS format files that are not CVS. It does work by parsing
RCS files. It knows how to gather up information from the collection
of xxx,v files, grouping sets of changes together into a single
Subversion commit as appropriate.
