What files are causing my backup dump to become humungous?

At some point, my periodic "svnadmin dump" backup became much, much huger than I expected.

I am guessing that there is some large file (or files) that I am checking in often that Subversion can't get an efficient diff for. I furthermore suspect that I might not even need that file in my repository. But finding the file in question might not be easy.

Is there some easy tool to do something like:

(1) Look through a dump;
(2) For each file encountered, sum up the total space used in the dump because of it
(3) Output that information?

Thanks in advance for any help.
