I understand you want to merge the changes you have done in the branch to the trunk. If that's the case then from the branch you use the --reintegrate option.

The merge command you issued merges the changes between 475 and 476 done to trunk into the directory you are in. Since the changes happened on the branch it's correct that it doesn't merge anything.
