I am using using Info-ZIP, and would like to compress a directory structure recursively ignore all the .svn directories (from Subversion) that exist at every level.

I tried something like: zip -r dir -x .svn. This does not work, as I guess zip expects file names with a full path as an argument to -x.

Any suggestion?
