I'm not sure if this was Mark's problem, but what if I am managing
several machines, with different /etc directories, and I want them all
to be under svn control?

For the first one I can do an in place import, but for the second and
subsequent, I want to turn on versioning, and then decide for each of
the files that is there whether the differences from the ones already in
the repos should be kept or discarded. What's the best way to do this?
