You use the verb "co." I assume you mean "checkout," which I assume
means that the vendor source is already under Subversion version
control? If so, I'd use "svn export" instead to get a copy of their
source. Then simply "rm -rf " the directory you don't want in your
local repository. Then "svn import" it into your local repository.

In the future, if you want to update your local repository, you can
use the svn_load_dirs.pl script which is in the contrib directory of
the Subversion source distribution. The script and more strategies
are explained in the book in the chapter on vendor branches. See

Before importing a new copy with svn_load_dirs.pl, you would need to
again manually remove the directory that you don't want to have.
