"Base deleted" is not the same as the file being deleted. It's been said
before, but it'll happen if you update when a file was deleted in the
repository, but modified in your working copy. This should result in a
tree conflict.

I see here:
https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/articles/committers-guide/subversion-primer.html

that FreeBSD uses (or perhaps suggests using) a variant of Subversion
with FreeBSD-specific patches. The only reference I find to Subversion
in this problem report is that there's "a Subversion problem of some
sort." Hardly helpful

For starters, somebody can take the time to confirm that stock
Subversion without FreeBSD-specific patches behaves the same way. Sorry
if that sounds a bit untrustful, but frankly, I can't recall seeing the
problem you report in any release version of Subversion, so I have my
doubts.
