Hardcoding "diff". Actually, we should use "diff" instead of false and
"/sbin/sendmail" instead of false for sendmail. These are the sensible defaults
that are likely to work even if the compiled binary goes elsewhere. It would
also make sense to move these checks to the runtime. It's pretty stupid to do
them at compile time. *cough* Maybe I should just do that...
