What I also just saw is that /usr/bin/diffoscope is a auto-generated
script from easy_install coming from "entry_points={ 'console_scripts' ... }"
in setup.py. Not bin/diffoscope from the source directory.
So this auto-generated script is actually throwing the error (because of
requires.txt described in the previous mail), not diffoscope.
