Hi John

It seems that I've deleted the source for Rancid at some point.  Would there be any other place that this would be set? Somewhere in the Rancid etc or var folder maybe?

this is most likely the configure script or the PATH in rancid.conf winding-up
with arguments for diff that it doesnt like.  see DIFF_CMD in the config.status
file that was generated by configure.
