Well, I am not sure what exactly happens if you delete a file that was
in a conflict so doing it "subversion-like" would be the best method.
You certainly want to get rid of your local changes (in this case).
You acheive it by a single comand:

svn revert texmf-dist/ls-R

This even does not need to contact the server since all required
information is already in the administrative area of your working
copy. you can read the details at
