Fails for me on Debian 2.2 - which only has GNU diff!

=build[0]$ diff --version
diff - GNU diffutils version 2.7
=build[0]$ ../configure --prefix=/usr/local

The configured versions of diff and diff3 do not handle files
not ending in newline correctly.

  configured diff = diff.
  configured diff3 = diff3.

...etc.

This bug should be followed up with roberto @ keltia.freenix.fr

Interestingly, my FreeBSD 4.8 which is supposed to have a bad diff/diff3 fails with both the standard diff and a pristine GNU diff.
                                                                               
243 [10:52] roberto@tara:src/=build> CFLAGS="-O -pipe" ../configure
--prefix /usr/local --with-gnu-diff gdiff --with-gnu-diff3 gdiff3
                                                                               
The configured versions of diff and diff3 do not handle files not ending in newline correctly.
                                                                               
  configured diff = gdiff.
  configured diff3 = gdiff3.

Use config options
  --gnu-diff
  --gnu-diff3
                                                                               
I suspect the nonl-safe-diff script isn't doing his job properly.
