Yes.  As Michael said above, diff is used in the check-files script
for one.  So it needs to require diffutils.

The problem is that this could have been coordinated better.  The
buildsys package for F-7 shouldn't have been updated until after an
updated rpm package with fixed BRs was pushed.

Should a ticket get filed with infrastructure regarding this?  Or has
one already been filed?
