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:

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

Combining this with a note from the generic vim help, this can be done in .vimrc using if &diff

   set diffopt+=iwhite

else

   " setup for non-diff mode

endif
