Exactly what the message says: The external program diff isn't
installed or it cannot be found (probably because it's not in
installed in PATH).  Install it and make sure that PATH [1] contains
the directory where you installed it.

See `M-x getenv RET PATH RET' to see the PATH within Emacs.

Bye, Reiner.
