You could try a diff on the folder, telling it to ignore white space changes.
This way you would get just the actual changes.

I'm not sure if the TSVN diff tool supports this, if not you might have to use another tool (and compare a clean checkout with the modified files from your third party). Possible candidates: WinMerge, kdiff3, etc...
