Remove folders from version control (without commit)

Hi all,

I checked out my working dir with the "-N" command... but somehow I updated
the folder with svn up in a way that all folders that where excluded before
are now also checked out and under version control.
I want to remove those folders again, but for sure I do not want to delete
them in the repo on the next commit (svn del will not work).
When I remove the folders with 'rm -rf' I get the status '!' when using
the 'svn st' command... and also subclipse (subversion plugin for eclipse)
shows those folders in the synchronize view, which is annoying.
Can I tell svn to really remove those folders from version control WITHOUT
committing these changes? I googled for that but I can't find any solution.
Sure I can just create a new working dir, but I have made a lot of changes and
I don't want to recompile everything again (it is a very large KDE project
that takes me 2 hours on full compile).

Best regards!
