Something like this:

$ LC_ALL=C svn log -v -l1 new_foo
------------------------------------------------------------------------
r6 | peters | 2013-06-25 13:05:16 -0500 (Tue, 25 Jun 2013) | 1 line
Changed paths:
   A /new_foo (from /foo:1)

Copied and modified foo_at_1 to new_foo.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Parse the "A" line, then use that information to construct a diff
command line. Either of the following will work:

    svn diff -r1:6 new_foo
    svn diff ^/foo_at_1 ^/new_foo_at_6
