If you have lots of external content then there is no simple solution. 
If the database export/backup is what's taking all the time then you 
might try using a database that supports incremental backups or 
replication and use that for backing up your data.  For example, 
PostgreSQL 8 has point-in-time recovery: you archive Write Ahead Logs 
(WALs) to get incremental backups.  You could probably combine that with 
incremental tar files of your other data to get incremental backups of 
the whole setup.
