Based on just the start of the thread, I was already considering adding
diffutils to Base the next time I package it...

Umm, the cygwin build of coreutils DOES depend on gmp, unless I made a
mistake packaging it.  [/me goes and checks...] Yep - libgmp10 is in the
coreutils 'requires:' setup.hint.

...But you've added even more good justification for me to do so.  All
right, sounds like something I should do when I next have the chance.
