Using import is not appropriate in this case.  What you need to do is to
check out the vendor branch, copy the new files over top of the checked
out ones, cvs add any new ones, cvs remove any deleted ones, and then
commit the working directory (which is on the vendor branch), tag it
with the new release tag, and then proceed as if you had done an import
and merge the changes from the vendor branch to the trunk.
