"svn add" "svn:ignore" help

I've tried searching to no avail for this issue, so I'm hoping someone can

I'm running an automated build that needs to check in all of the folders and
files of a subdirectory. It needs to ignore all *.zip files, so I have
added svn:ignore *.zip to the properties of this subdirectory. There could
be new folders and files under this subdirectory, so I need to do an "svn
add" I basically want to do a --force so it goes into each folder whether
it's versioned or not and adds the files, but I want it to still ignore the
*.zip files. My subversion client is version 1.3.0 on Windows 2003 as well
as XP.

Example (if it looks familiar, I'm trying to get a snapshot of a Fitnesse
In repository:
Directory (svn:ignore *.zip)

In working directory:
Directory (svn:ignore *.zip)
-->lots of *.zip files
-->New SubDirectory
------>lots of *.zip files

What I want in the repository:
-->New SubDirectory

It could have many nesting subdirectories possibly.

Is there any way to do this? To basically update the Subversion repository
to be a snapshot of a working directory (which could have new folders and
files), but ignoring a set of files?

And it needs to be scriptable (i'm using exec tasks in an ant script).

Thank you in advance
