I use the following in ~/.subversion/config
        [helpers]
        diff-cmd = /path/to/mydiff

and mydiff contains:
        #!/bin/bash
        diff=/usr/bin/diff
        args="-wd"
        
        exec ${diff} ${args} "$@"

the "-wd" args tell diff to ignore whitespace when comparing files and
also to produce a smaller set of changes. This makes the diff output
more compact and easier to read, especially when I go through a file
and change tabs to spaces. :-)
