Have you run your own test against gdiff3 on your BSD box? IOW, does gdiff3
work fine (no extra newline), while diff3 adds the newline?

Also, I noticed in your test that you used "echo -n" which isn't portable to
some echo scripts. Just a test script, sure, but when it goes into the
./configure-time test, it needs to do the ECHO_N and ECHO_C magic.
