IIRC mailer.py uses svn's own internal diff to show file differences,
and only uses the diff command to get property differences. It's been a
while since it was in the source though.

 From my mailer.conf:

# On Windows, you can use the GNU DiffUtils package from
# http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/diffutils.htm
diff = C:\Progra~1\GnuWin32\bin\diff.exe -u -L %(label_from)s -L
%(label_to)s %(from)s %(to)s
