For me it's <3 minutes too.

It should be straightforward to implement a script which does the

  . Run `svn update Build/cdbuild/logs/svnlog'.  This takes less than
    a second for me.

  . Parse the last changelog entry for the indented file names which
    come after the `Changed paths:' line, extract all directories,
    sort and uniquify them, and finally call `svn update' on only
    those directories.

I think this would be the fastest way to update the complete SVN
