You can do a lightweight checkout:

bzr checkout -v --lightweight http://bzr.savannah.gnu.org/r/emacs/trunk trunk

This takes less than 5min. on my system, fetching roughly 80-90MB of data.

If you don't need any history at all, you can simply get a tar.gz snapshot
from the git mirror:

http://repo.or.cz/w/emacs.git
