I suspect this is a Cygwin configuration problem, not an Emacs problem.  

The "diff: not found" message means that diff3.exe cannot find the 
diff.exe program to run it.  Please investigate why does this happen; 
presumably, some PATH setting gets screwed.  (One possible lossage is 
with the Cygwin-style //d/foo/bar style of directories.)
