Currently CVS uses GNU diff's -L option.
That option has been undocumented since diffutils 2.8
(released in March 2002) and the option is intended to
be replaced sometime soon with a different meaning.

Can you please fix CVS so that it uses "diff --label"
instead of "diff -L"?  That will make CVS immune to this
planned change.  Thanks.

A proposed (but untested) patch is attached.
