git-svn may be of help here. (git does not track renames but instead
infers them from content afterwards.) It looks like when you do

git svn clone $your_svn_url workdir
cd workdir
(remove everyting except .git dir)
(unpack new tar file)
git add --all .
git svn dcommit

it will put the proper rename infos into svn.

Your mileage may vary, have backups, and git-svn isn't or weren't quite
easy to install (the libsvn perl stubs (make swig-pl-lib), that is).
