I like very much the default output of the FreeBSD diff program.
So I prefer using "svn diff --diff-cmd=/usr/bin/diff -x --normal"
instead of just "svn diff".

However, when I put the line "diff-cmd = /usr/bin/diff -x --normal"
into ~/.subversion/config, I get the following error message:

exec of '/usr/bin/diff -x --normal' failed: No such file or directorysvn: '/usr/bin/diff -x --normal' returned 255

I guess it is trying to exec '/usr/bin/diff -x --normal' as a whole
which is kind of expected.

For the present, I have created a shell alias for the "svn diff"
command, but I am curious what the correct ~/.subversion/config syntax
is to achieve what I want?
