The best solution should be to make a dump of the repository(with
svnadmin dump) and use svndumpfilter to exclude the desired deleted
files and reimport the so generated new dumpfile.

There is a pretty good description of this process in the svnbook:
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch05s03.html#svn-ch-5-sect-3.1.3

I did it once, it's pretty easy to do.

Cheers,
Peter
