Unfortunately a working copy or part of a working copy can only
belong to exactly one repository; it is not possible to share it
between different repositories in order to synchronize them. So
copying the files is the only solution.

If you just want to refer to an external repository you can use
the svn:external property which allows you to stick a part of your
working copy either to the head oder a specified revision.

With best regards
