So I did the next intuitive thing:
  rm -rf cf_image/source/usr/share/doc
Then I ran it again, only to find:
...
Adding cf_image/source/dev
svn: Unknown or unversionable type for 'cf_image/source/dev/dpti1'
 
 ls -laF cf_image/source/dev/dpti1
    crw-rw---- 1 root disk 151, 0 Feb 13 2006 cf_image/source/dev/dpti1

OH character devices not handled either.
Ok. I got udev...
  rm -rf cf_image/source/dev/*
...
Then I ran it again, and it finished.
Committed revision 1.
