Please stop posting links to the HTTPS version of that site. They
don't use a certificate that Firefox recognizes, which is a pain. HTTP
is perfectly fine.

Since Subversion is returning

   svn: Process 'diff' failed (exitwhy 2)

Isn't it possible that it's a problem with diff?

To find out for sure if it's Gentoo-specific or not, compile the
"vanilla" sources (or run svn on a non-Gentoo system altogether) & see
if the same problem happens.

I have run svn diff --diff-cmd diff -r PREV on a WC on my WinXP system
(all native Win32 - my diff reports diff - GNU diffutils version 2.7)
and it works perfectly fine.
