Is it GNU diff? If so, you might want to try
  diff -b -I '\$Id[^$]*\$' -I '\$Date[^$]*\$' -I '\$Revision[^$]*\$'
(assuming unix shell; some other form of quoting otherwise...)

This isn't perfect - it won't detect other changes on a line with a
$Id$, but that would be fairly unusual. You might need to extend this
with other SVN keywords.

Also, if there are other changes in the same diff-block as the SVN
keyword changes, then the ignore pattern doesn't actually appear to trim
things out. (I've tested this with mpl/accumulate.hpp, and it silences
the diffs.)

The "-b" is just to ignore changes of whitespace (in my case,
differences in line endings).
