Bug Description

Man page for diff (1) is out of date.

* Platform: PC
* Version: Ubuntu 14.04
* Package: diffutil
* File: diff.1.gz
* Description:

   Diffutils is now Gnu Diffutil v3.3. It supports --no-dereference option. However, this option is missing in the man page (diff (1)).

   The info manual from the same package (diffutils.info.gz) is correct though.

   I don't examine all other options, but at least this "--no-dereference" option is missing in the man page.
