I have written a modern version of the old diffh.
As you probably know, diffh did a half-hearted job, but would work on
files of any length. (Actually, the old Bell version often gave up on
complex input so I am not quite sure if that description is quite correct.)
I wrote it because one of our users here at the University of Manchester
needed to diff files with ~16million lines of information, which is too
big for GNU diff - at least on any system we have access to.
Would it be of interest to the GNU project?
It is currently just public domain but I could do a version that came
with the GPL.
It is here
if you want to have a look. It wasn't written to GNU style or codeing
