FWIW, I just ran "time svn update", and it took 36 minutes (including  
fetching hppa-hpux binaries, not many other changes). Re-running the  
command when there aren't a fresh batch of binaries to retrieve, it  
takes about 6 minutes. This is on a basic home ADSL line (max 2 Mb/ 
s); I assume I'd see better times on a faster connection.
