There is no easy way to do it from the svn client (tortoise and command line
that you are talking about are the clients).

Whatever you need it is best achieved at the server side. You can do one of
the following:

(1) You can install ViewVC and turn on the query feature. When the query
feature is available, it gives a Bonsai-like search form. The subversion's
ViewVC page (here: http://svn.collab.net/viewvc/svn/) has the query
interface enabled. Click on "Query Revision History" and see if that is what
you want.

(2) You can run the "snvlook tree" command on the server to achieve what you

   # svnlook tree /path/to/reposistory --full-path | grep "\.mdb$"

Or some equivalent command, if it is running on a windows machine.
