Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2008-03-06 21:01:48 UTC
Confirm your web server is not running in a chroot or jail environment which might not look the same as your shell.
Comment 2 im 2008-03-07 07:21:52 UTC
My web server not in chroot or jail.
It is installed from FreeBSD ports collection using "make install clean" :-)

Comment 3 Sean McAfee 2008-10-08 19:20:40 UTC
This is actually a problem with the FreeBSD ports tree, not with Mediawiki.  I've filed the appropriate bug report, which can be viewed at, and will resolve this one.

As a temporary fix, merely deleting www/mediawiki/files/patch-index.php is enough:
Found GNU diff3: /usr/bin/diff3.
