It is probably due to slowness of the IO across network to read what is in
the target repository and then copy over the files. Other than tuning NFS
or whatever you are using there is not much you can do.  This is why my
first recommendation was to use svnsync. You could have a second backup
server running and then use svnsync via https or svn protocol to that
server.  This basically replays the commit transaction so performs
comparably to the original commit. It also makes it a lot easier to send
the backup around the world or to another data center since it is using a
protocol that is meant for that sort of latency.

That said, I have no idea what kind of performance you should be able to
get via NFS.  30 seconds seems slower than it ought to have been.
