Yesno :D. FWIW
diff -r /path1 /path2; echo $?
sometimes could be a PITA, at least on Linux.
diff -r --no-dereference /path1 /path2; echo $?
However, I'm used to (bash on) Linux, OTOH
doesn't find a match. I don't know how soft links are handled by
FreeBSD's diff, but the diff I'm used to tends to fail, without the
--no-dereference option, if soft links are involved. If so, it quasi
suffers from false positives.
