Hmm, I thought I had tried that... maybe because there were subfolders
under /boot (such as /boot/grub) it didn't actually do anything. From
my log files:

src # cd /
/ # svn status -q
~ boot
/ # svn revert boot
svn: Try 'svn revert --recursive' instead?
svn: Working copy 'usr' is missing or not locked
/ # cd /boot
boot # svn status
svn: '.' is not a working copy

And "revert" is indeed the command that I was probably looking for. But
under the stress of a deadline my reading skills were less then stellar.
  After another 30 minutes of futzing with various combinations, I blew
away all .svn folders, blew away the repository and re-added the files
in /boot, /etc and a few other locations. (As well as updating my rsync
snapshot backup that uses hard links.)
