I'd check out a new copy elsewhere, copy your local mods into the new
WC, commit from there, and then move the whole tree into place. Working
copies don't care where they are, so this one won't know it was in
/tmp/WC instead of /usr/local.

Make sure you check out the same revision as you were working on,
otherwise you may end up accidentally reverting some changes you really
