    Perhaps not, but for some reason the stock wdiff-0.5g from Francois'

Ah.  Well, I see your logic, but since the whole infrastructure is going
to change with the advent of gnulib, to me it doesn't seem worth the
time to track down.  Just move ahead ...

Anyway, looking at the diff, it seems aclocal.m4 is the most likely
culprit, which automake routinely updated (and so it is almost
completely new).  If you copy in aclocal.m4 from 0.5g, does it work

I gave that a shot and it doesn't work, but I see now that I may have
messed up my tree a little bit.  In diffing aclocal.m4, I noticed that
it was very different than the 0.5g aclocal.m4.  I  think I
accidentally generated some new scripts with some invokation of
automake, autoconf, or aclocal, which overwrote the old scripts that
had been working before.  I will back out these changes and test
