I don't think there is an easy way. You might be interested in reading
especially "user question #3".

Typically you are only maintaining one or two "old release" branches, so it
shouldn't be much of a problem to examine each branch to see whether
you want/need to backport your trunk change.

I think it is safer if you merge only the specific trunk change which
you want to
backport. After all, the reason for having an "older release" dev branch is that
you only want bugfixes there. See the section "Copying Specific Changes" at
