The responses you've already received describe an alternative to "svn
import" that you can use to get the files into the repository
initially and have your directories automatically transformed into a
working copy.

If you have already used "svn import" and everything's already in the
repository, and you now want to have Subversion create the .svn
directories in the directory you imported, then that's unfortunately
not available in Subversion yet. Someone just posted a message on the
list a week or so ago about how this feature (where you can force a
checkout on top of an existing directory filled with files) might
make it into Subversion 1.5, but I cannot find the message now.
