Do you use psvn.el ? with it when you are in  svn-status, you just have 
to hit E to ediff your file with the last commited version.
If you prefix your command with C-u you can ediff with the version of the file
you want.
psvn.el is installed with subversion you just have to require it.
Have a look in your site-emacs/subversion.
