I had been searching for a way to ignore white spaces while using vimdiff. Unfortunately, vimdiff -h yields the generic Vim help. I finally found that including the following line in vimrc solves the problem.

set diffopt+=iwhite

From the command line use:

vimdiff -c 'set diffopt+=iwhite' ...

To have vimdiff ignore whitespace while normal vim doesn't, simply put this into your .vimrc:

if &diff
    " diff mode
    set diffopt+=iwhite
endif
