When GNU diffutils is used with RCS you can use the following:

  rcsiff -q --brief file foo.txt

It prints one line if the files differ:

Files foo.txt 2005/08/25 15:53:46 1.1 and foo.txt 2005/08/29 20:38:13 differ

If you want the other features of `cmp', like byte differences, you can
always run the following on individual files:

co -p foo.txt | cmp -b - foo.txt
