its due to the diff(1) that is being picked-up via the PATH in rancid.conf
or the options that are being passed to it, both chosen by the configure
script. most likely it is that gnu diff started refusing the -4 (number
of context lines) option at some point. see the diff commands in
control_rancid and try them, eg
diff -u -4 /dev/null /dev/null
should produce the exit code 0.
if you use 2.3.1, this should be dealt with acceptably for linux, but still
doesnt work quite right for solaris. and, we're trying to come up with a
better configure test for diff.
