-F / --file is for specifying your commit message in a file, as
opposed to specifying it directly on the command line via -m / --
message or entering it interactively if you use none of these
switches. It is not related to excluding files.

Since you don't want to use the global config file, you could try a
so-called in-place import. Create an empty directory in your
repository, where your files will eventually go. For example:

$ svnadmin create http://svn.example.org/fooproject/trunk

Now go into the directory you were going to import, and check this
empty directory out over the top of it:

$ cd /directory/with/all/your/files/in/it
$ svn co http://svn.example.org/fooproject/trunk .

You can now selectively "svn add" the things you want to add, then
check it in.

Before that, you can also add svn:ignore properties to directories as
