spent in maintenance on the pkgsrc tree, ready for a forthcoming

The Package of the Month award goes to wdiff (pkgsrc/textproc/wdiff),
nominated by Lex Wennmacher - Lex writes:

	"wdiff is a small, but very useful utility.  The other day I
	had to compare two texts where one was derived from the other,
	but the line breaks and paragraphs had been changed - no go
	for simple diff.  wdiff did the job.  On an other occasion, I
	had to compare two text with very long (hundreds of charactes)
	lines.  While normal diff formally works, you still end up
	comparing the characters in the + and - lines individually,
	until you spot the difference.  Again, wdiff makes this
	comparison really easy."
