Ok, I did read it now. I have a directory in every project that
containes the same code. Let's call that directory misc...

So I did

cd misc (in one project)
svn editprop (it launches an editor where i enter...)
>misc /bla/test/misc

So I guess it will now add, commit and update from/to /bla/test/misc
instead of ./misc???? Can I delete that ./misc now to make things even
more complicated or what?

To me this seems like a fix for OS' that don't support symbolic links
because an option that would force svn to follow symbolic links would be
less a pain to use...
