svn_load_dirs.pl is more for updating an existing directory in
Subversion when it's been changed by an outside source, finding all
the additions, moves & deletions and handling them for you.

In your example, step 2 you can do with "svn import" as you're taking
an unversioned directory structure and loading it into an empty
directory in the repository (you may want to create the directory
first with svn mkdir).

At step 5, it's not clear to me whether you're loading new files into
an already-versioned directory (in which case svn_load_dirs.pl would
be appropriate) or loading files into a brand-new directory (in which
case svn import would be appropriate).
