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.
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
