    Not really. From the diff manpage:

    -X FILE --exclude-from=FILE
    Exclude files that match any pattern in FILE.

    You may want to take a look at a copy of dontdiff (noting the shell
    patterns). It looks like dontdiff could be generated from mrproper's
    list of scratch files (with the exception of the '-size 0' test in the
    'find' command) but I could be wrong.

    FWIW, the $(RCS_FIND_IGNORE) part skips some version-control directories
    that dontdiff doesn't mention. I guess the party line is that you should
    use the version control system for doing diffs in that case, but whatever.

    If you try to replace dontdiff with a dynamically generated list, be
    sure and have a few folks test it out on different trees (including ones
    managed by BK and SVN) to make sure you haven't broken anything.
