directory will not add

I am installing a package that creates a new directory in the working copy
on the server. I am unable to get it to add properly. Here are the steps I
am going through:

1. Install package, which creates the directory.

2. svn status
? xotcl-core

3. svn add xotcl-core
svn: Can't create directory 'xotcl-core/.svn': Permission denied

4. sudo su - (accountname)

5. cd packages

6. svn add xotcl-core
svn: warning: 'xotcl-core' is already under version control

7. exit
(gets out of account)

8. svn status
~ xotcl-core

It now gives a status of "~", even though there is no directory or file of
that name in the repository.

9. svn commit
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Directory '/packages/xotcl-core/.svn' containing working copy admin
area is missing

I have gone through this several times with no luck.
