It makes a difference for some tools such as patch which creates a
temporary file. The default TEMP points to /cygdrive/c/WINNT/Temp on
say a NT or Win2k box which is by default textmode, and patch output
then adds unexpected ^Ms. I personally set TMPDIR and TEMP to /tmp
in .bashrc to avoid these little issues.
Doesn't make a difference for diff, which doesn't use temporary files.
