You might be able to use 'svn diff' to get a patchfile, but that is limited
with regards to binary files. Other than that, instead of doing an export,
create a working copy which you can then 'svn update' in bandwidth-efficient
way. It creates a bunch of .svn subdirs though and requires ~twice the
diskspace on the server.

Try rsync.
