configure in devel/diffutils hardwires the macro DEFAULT_DIFF_PROGRAM to 
"diff". In combination with a default GNU_PROGRAM_PREFIX, this leads to a 
non-working gdiff3:

$ gdiff3 foo bar baz
diff: illegal option -- horizon-lines=100
usage: diff [-bitw] [-c | -e | -f | -h | -n | -u] file1 file2
       diff [-bitw] [-C number | -U number] file1 file2
       diff [-bitw] [-D string] file1 file2
       diff [-bitw] [-c | -e | -f | -h | -n | -u] [-l] [-r] [-s] [-S name] 
directory1 directory2
gdiff3: subsidiary program `diff' failed

The diff called in this example is Solaris' /usr/bin/diff.
