So far, so good...

That doesn't make much sense to me, normally, you would use a working copy for
that and commit all changes in a single revision. Also, that would give you
the means to first test the new version in that working copy.

Now, assuming you can get it to install into an arbitrary place (like with
autotools), you could use svn_load_dirs.pl to afterwards sync the state of
that place with the repository. It's documented in the SVN-book for tracking
vendor changes.

Import is for initially importing things. What you want is to add new files or
update/remove existing ones, not to import things all over!

Danger: this won't add new files or remove deceased ones! svn_load_dirs does

Then go an delete the working copy afterwards! Why is the place such a
problem? Disk space is cheap!
