What I meant was a diff from a checkout from the last CVS HEAD to a checkout 
from a recent SVN trunk.  I've just realised, however, that this won't work 
because e.g. .svn/ contains a copy of every checked out file anyway so the 
diff would be just as big as the sources.  Of course, this could be avoided 
using a script that builds that bit of .svn/ but that's getting too complex.

Sorry, I don't think I'll have enough money for that :(

I think I'll take up Dirk's offer.
