I've made a new version of 'diffutils' (http://www.gnu.org/software/diffutils/)
available for installation.  This is the most recent version of diffutils from
ftp.gnu.org .  I've included a snippet from the diffutils NEWS after the
unsubscribe info.

* Noteworthy changes in release 2.9 (2010-02-11) [stable]

** New features

  New diff option --suppress-blank-empty.

  Bring back support for `diff -NUM', where NUM is a number,
  even when conforming to POSIX 1003.1-2001.  This change reverts to
  the behavior of GNU diff 2.7 and earlier.  This is a change only
  when conforming to POSIX 1003.1-2001; there is no effect when
  conforming to older POSIX versions.

  This change is in response to decisions taken in the January 2005
  Austin Group standardization meeting.  For more details, please see
  "Utility Syntax Guidelines" in the Minutes of the January 2005
  Meeting <http://www.opengroup.org/austin/docs/austin_239.html>.

  sdiff now understands '1' and '2' as synonyms for 'l' and 'r'.

** Changes in behavior

  sdiff and diff3 now invoke diff, not $(bindir)/diff
