a patch for ac-helpers/gnu-{diff,patch}.sh

From: Akinori MUSHA <knu_at_iDaemons.org>
Date: 2001-11-03 16:22:39 CET

Hi,

Attached is a patch to make ac-helpers/gnu-{diff,patch}.sh scripts
prettier and smart enough to pick diff/patch programs installed with
`g' prefix.

On such platforms as FreeBSD, GNU diff and GNU patch are installed as
`gdiff' and `gpatch' respectively, and diff/patch in the base system
are a bit older and hacked versions of those, which don't handle files
which don't end with newlines.

Please merge this if it's okay.
