RE: BUG: tests/scripts/defines.sh has bad DIFF line
I'll grab that from sunfreeware, then. I know the GNU tools are almost
always better than the standard solaris ones, but it's a little hokey to
require this one.
Hmm, what other gnu tools are required? ld? make? I've been trying to use
the solaris tools whenever possible, but I may have to change strategy here.
I know when building postfix that Weitse Venema prefers the solaris tools

Try to build a GNU diff from
and try again.
Or download a diffutils package from http://sunfreeware.com/.
