They're just directories. Make them any way you like:

with remote repository URLs "svn mkdir --parents protocol://hostname/
repo/project1/{trunk,branches,tags} -m 'making structure for project1'"

or check out a working copy of the empty repository, make the
directories and commit, "svn checkout -N protocol://hostname/repo &&
svn mkdir --parents project1/{trunk,branches,tags} && svn commit -m
'making structure for project1'"

or make the structure locally and import it, "mkdir project1 project1/
{trunk,branches,tags} && svn import project1 protocol://hostname/repo/
project1 -m 'making structure for project1' && rm -rf project1"

(these are all from memory so please forgive any typos)
