    svn diff http://bbdev.fluffy.co.uk/svn/box/trunk/ \

This works straight from the repository with no checked out copy and is 
what you're after.

As to alternatives, the obvious approach from within a working copy is:

    svn diff trunk martin/solaris

but unfortunately this doesn't work - only diffs between revisions are 
implemented clientside at the moment. However, of course, diff works 

    diff -Nru --exclude .svn trunk martin/solaris

Alternatively in this case you could diff the changes between when the 
branch was taken and its head.

    svn diff -r 1:HEAD martin/solaris
