There is not just one place, there are many places, even within the diff code.  Start in subversion/svn/diff-cmd.c, at svn_cl__diff(), and follow the function calls down.  For a WC-to-WC diff, these are the main calls:

    svn_client_diff[_summarize]6, svn_client_diff[_summarize]_peg2
            /* Walk all the children of this directory. */
            for (hi = apr_hash_first(subpool, all_children);
                 hi; hi = apr_hash_next(hi))
This place determines the order of entries within a directory, for a WC-to-WC diff.  That's just one of the code paths involved in diff.  There are several others, depending on the kind of diff.  For diffs against the repository, it is more complex.  Also
look for code that determines the order of property changes.
