And just to say that if your goal is "make the release branch the same as
Trunk", then something like:

svn merge release/libs/yourlib_at_HEAD ../trunk/libs/yourlib_at_HEAD
svn merge release/boost/yourlib_at_HEAD ../trunk/boost/yourlib_at_HEAD

adjusting paths to release and trunk as required.

HTH, John.
