diff with binary files

Dear list,

I would like to use subversion to organize a tree of binary files. I
have a diff-tool for these files and tried something like

svn diff --diff-cmd <my tool> <file in wc>

I get

Index: <file in wc>
Cannot display: file marked as a binary type.
svn:mime-type = application/octet-stream

My diff-tool is never called. Of course svn can not display anything of
my binary files, but I would like my diff-tool to be called with two
filenames. All the rest the tool can do.

Do I miss something?
I am running svn 1.3.1 on Debian. I read somewhere that a --force should
convince svn diff to run anyway, but my svn diff does not recognize this

Best regards
