See http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/8793 also. Apparently man needs
diffutils too. While this is annoying, it's probably just going to be
easier for us to move diffutils into core, rather than start a
precedent of patching our core packages to remove deps.

I'd suggest filing upstream bugs for this if it's an issue.

I vote for diffutils in base (sigh)
