Don't forget that the patch requirement is only on the SERVER, it might
be worth trying cygwin on the server only and using the standalone
diffutils for the clients. I have to confess I've not tried using
post-review with svn clients on Windows (so I'm not clear what the
requirements are). BUT I am using cygwin patch on a Windows server (the
scm tool I use on the client's has it's own diff built in).
One thing I did come across a while back is that Tortoise SVN does
support command line arguments, you may be able to simply generate the
patch(es) using that without any other tools on the clients.

Doh! I'd be interested to hear if it occurs again.
