managing changes from developer that sends entire "release"

Hello list.

I have a situation where I want to manage/merge a bunch of changes made by a
contributing developer that is not using our subversion server. When he
creates a "release" he's got all the files zipped in an archive and sends it
out. This zip file contains the entire directory structure for a website.
I want to take what he's sent me and put it into subversion so I can track
what changes.

Right now I've got a 2.x branch that is supposed to contain the lastest work
on the website. I've also got a 2.11 branch that I used to add all the
files he gave me, whether they've changed or not. I tried doing a merge of
the 2.11 into the 2.x, but every file shows up as replaced, added or
deleted. Most show up as replaced.

I really want to be able to just commit the files that have been:
Changed
Moved from one directory to another
Added (newly created)
Deleted (removed in latest release)

Any clues on how I can go about merging/committing changes with an entire
directory structure as reference?

Thanks,

Brian
