The textproc/wdiff package in pkgsrc-current currently holds wdiff version 
while the current upstream release is 1.1.0; updating is desired, as also
noted in pkgsrc/doc/TODO since r1.10676 of the file.

Changes since release 1.0.1, as taken from the `NEWS' file from the 1.1.0
release distfile, but at the moment of writing also (although in slighty 
form) listed on the homepage <>:

* Version 1.1.0 - November 2011, by Martin von Gager

  * Updated Czech, German, Spanish, Finnish, Dutch, Polish, Slovenian,
    Swedish and Ukrainian translations.
  * Fix several issue with the use of screen in the test suite.
  * Allow WDIFF_PAGER to override PAGER environment variable.
  * Do not autodetect less, so we don't auto-enable less-mode.
    This should improve things for UTF8 text. (Savannah bug #34224)
    Less-mode is considered deprecated, as it isn't fit for multi-byte
    encodings. Nevertheless it can still be enabled on the command line.

* Version 1.0.2 - September 2011, by Martin von Gagern

  * Unofficial beta release
  * Introduces use of ngettext to allow correct handling of plural forms

While here, update the description in the `DESCR' file to today's contents of
<> (see patch below).

When the package is updated, doc/TODO and doc/CHANGES-2011 should
obviously be updated accordingly as well.
With an up-to-date checkout of pkgsrc-current, issue
"cd /usr/pkgsrc/textproc/wdiff; make package-name"; compare with the current
contents of <>.
Apply the following proposed patch file, generated with
"cd /usr/pkgsrc/; cvs diff -u textproc/wdiff" and created, tested, and found to
work correctly on NetBSD/i386 (the MD5 sum of this patch file is
b5f3ab0891b5a587772ed9a170312760; please verify it before applying):

-`wdiff' is a front-end to GNU `diff'.  It compares two files, finding
-which words have been deleted or added to the first in order to create
-the second.  It has many output formats and interacts well with

-GNU `wdiff' has been written by Franc,ois Pinard.  It is an evolving

+The GNU wdiff program is a front end to diff for comparing files
+on a word per word basis.  A word is anything between whitespace.
+This is useful for comparing two texts in which a few words have
+been changed and for which paragraphs have been refilled.  It works
+by creating two temporary files, one word per line, and then executes
+diff on these files.  It collects the diff output and uses it to
+produce a nicer display of word differences between the original
