[bug-diffutils] bug#24227: new snapshot available: diffutils-3.4.8-c06c

I expect to make a new release soon, so please test this snapshot.

Other than the two bug fixes, this also includes new dash-excluding
code in init.sh's shell-selection logic, so let us know if you find a
system for which /bin/dash was the only usable shell for
diffutils-3.4. Now, that code will find no usable shell and "skip"
nearly all tests.

Here are the two NEWS entries-to-be for the upcoming diffutils-3.5:

** Bug fixes

  diff3 no longer malfunctions due to use-after-free [bug introduced in 3.4]
  diff --color no longer colorizes when TERM=dumb
