SVN - comparing 2 branches

Hi there,
I'm about to merge two of my branches, but I need to make a comparison between them, just to make sure that everything is fine, there are not much difference though.
So, what would be the best way/tool/command to do it!?
I'm using subversion 1.6 under Ubuntu. I can also use windows(VM) to do it if there's a better tool for that task.
Thanks in advance.

I think Subclipse under Eclipse does a fine job of comparing branches, if you use that. But even just the command-line client does a fine job.
