Well "diff -r -w DIR1 DIR2" usually works well for me.  -r is the
recursive flag, -w causes diff to ignore white space differences.

However comparing two /etc directories is gonna produce a lot of
noise changes unless the distros are very closely related. Try to
work with smaller sets like the configuration sub directories.
