Two ideas come into my mind:

1.) sending a patch (a diff between two tags)
    advantages: - only the really necessary information is sent to your
                  customer
                - deleted files are taken into account
    disadvantage: your customer needs the patch program

2.) something like:
svn co https://server/svnroot/project/tags/version1 tmpdir
svn export --force https://server/svnroot/project/tags/version2 tmpdir
tar -czf hotfix.tgz -C tmpdir `svn status tmpdir | cut -d/ -f2-`

Cheers, Peter
