A very similar question was just asked earlier today/yesterday, and
this is also in the FAQ.

There is, by design, currently no "simple" way to remove all traces of
a file from a repository. You must dump the repository using svnadmin
dump, filter out the offending path(s) using svndumpfilter, then
reload the repository.
