install "diffutils" or build a custom image yourself.

install diff in busybox per default.
Installing packages basic linux commands separately is overhead.
Concentrate on busybox - everthing is there already.

Full blown packages are something for debwrt. Openwrt should concentrate on being fast, versatile and small, IMO.
