You can download the source from Here and compile it manually. It should be an archive.

There should be a INSTALL file, read it for installation instructions.
But the basic steps are generally:
#./configure
#make
#make install

There is no compilation. It's just one tcl/tk script.

The script 'tkdiff' can be clicked, to check,
that your wish command works OK.

Installation : 1) cd tkdiff-4.1.4-unix/ , 2) su ,
3) cp tkdiff /usr/local/bin/

Using : tkdiff file1 file2

.....

Thank you very much.
Just need to copy to /usr/local/bin/

I could use it already.
