I'd prefer to fix our diff to work correctly for good -- then people
won't need two diffs on their system to use subversion with NetBSD.

Any idea what the nature of the hack you speak of was? I've just
looked through our sources and can't find ANY substantive changes at
all! The only thing I've been able to detect is that we replaced
mktemp with mkstemp, a difference that can't possibly have caused this
semantic change.
