Export the two branches and run diff or cmp or your favorite tree diff'ing tool. You could use 'svn log' to find the files that changed, however, if you delete a directory, the files under the deleted directory will not be listed.

I'm not an xslt weenie, but since 'svn log' has the --xml option, you should be able to create an xslt to rip out the comment fields and list modified files.
