new port: textproc/colordiff - A tool to colorize diff output

Colordiff is a wrapper for diff and produces the same output as diff but with
coloured syntax highlighting at the command line to improve readability.

The output is similar to how a diff-generated patch might appear in Vim or Emacs
with the appropriate syntax highlighting options enabled.

Just checking, but this does look quite similar to textprox/cdiff. Might
this be the same ?

Sorry, I should have pointed that out in my pr.

colordiff is entirely written in perl and allows you to use all
arguments /usr/bin/diff has. i wasn't quite happy with textprox/cdiff
thats why i was looking for something better. compared with
textprox/cdiff colordiff is eyecandy for your console :-)

with colordiff you can even customize the colors in your ~/.colordiffrc

Cheers,
Emanuel

State Changed
From-To: open->closed

Port added, Thanks! 

One nit: The second line should read PORTVERSION, not DISTVERSION.
