Thank you for your suggestions!
What I need is to get a couple of folders in the project populated
with some "common" files through the use of the svn externals system.
But to do that I have to create a subdirectory inside the source
"common" directory just containing the common files needed by the
project. And since these files have evolved since the project in
question was originally worked on I want the files in the state they
were in at that time.

Once that is done (on the server side) I can then in the working copy
of the project define the external as usual targeting the
common/selectedfiles folder in the server.

Meanwhile I have checked out the old project on a branch from the time
of last release, but of course I did not get the needed extra
directories. So I found an old CVS working copy from that time and
copied over the two folders into the new SVN working copy (removing
the CVS subdirs in the process).
Then I checked that the project built properly and it did.

Of course I now have the option of just svn add-ing the two dirs in
the wc and be done. But I feel that this is probably not the right
thing to do, or just maybe it is....
These common files are not supposed to change anyway...
