As far as I can tell, only the source in 4.4BSD-Lite2 is legal to use
under the terms of the original suit. Diff and diff3 were excised from
that source tree.

It seems to me that using source from 32V would be very iffy, considering
the wording of the Caldera license, and the current SCO legal moves.
