Okay, here's how the diff-program arg works. It doesn't exist in diffutils
2.7. In diff-utils 2.8 and above diff3 first checks the --diff-program, then
a list of compiled in locations (i.e. not $PATH).
Our configure script detects the diff-program argument on unix, but we don't
on win32. I guess that what this means is that users will have to edit
svn_private_config.hw depending on the diff-utils version. I'm not sure
whether I added a place holder to svn_private_config.hw or not. I'll look
into it and add appropriately if it isn't there.
Maybe we need to add something to INSTALL stating to read through
svn_private_config.hw before building...
