You haven't given details about how your build process works, nor what
your environment is (OS, any antivirus running, etc.).

Is your build process copying source directories from one place to
another? If so, you're copying double the data when you're using a
working copy vs. an export. That'll also trigger most AV products'
"scan on access" feature which is notorious for killing performance.

Is your build process scanning all subdirectories? If so, tell it to
ignore the .svn directories.

TortoiseSVN does not poll the server automatically, so it's most like
something related to disk I/O.
