Diff the trees?

I just tried to clean up xpressive's files, and found that I can't write
to the subversion repository:

$ svn commit -m "delete old data resurrected in the switch to svn"
detail/static/productions/ detail/static/transforms/fold_to_xxx.hpp
detail/static/transforms/transform.hpp proto/compile.hpp proto/compiler/
proto/transform/conditional.hpp proto/transform/fold_to_list.hpp
Deleting detail/static/productions
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: CHECKOUT of
'/svn/boost/!svn/ver/38329/trunk/boost/xpressive/detail/static': 403
