Here is a blatant attempt to foist the work off onto you, Roger:

Would you like to come up with a patch for www/project_faq.html? The
format is self-explanatory, if a bit annoying (the TOC is not
automatically maintained, so you have to tweak it by hand).

If not, no problem, I can do it.

As for installer doc tweak, will leave for josander or whoever knows
how to maintain it. (I assume that packages/win32-innosetup/ is the
relevant region of the tree?)

  It's the old diff3 invoking diff problem. In both cases svn appears

  run.
 
 Aha! Thank you, Philip.
 
  I guess both the diff3s were looking for c:/.../diff.exe and neither
  found it.
 
 It sounds like a bug in the diff3 installation? Not sure it's worth
 an Subversion issue, especially with Sander working on replacing the
 external diff calls anyway, but maybe a FAQ item is in order? If you
 and/or the reporters agree with this analysis, I'll whip one up...
