Are you asking for help on using the diff program?  If so, "man diff"
and "info diff" should have it.  In short, the command you'd use is
probably like this:

diff -urpN popa3d-1.0.orig popa3d-1.0 > popa3d-1.0-whatever-1.diff

where popa3d-1.0.orig is the original popa3d 1.0 tree, and popa3d-1.0
is your modified version.  Be sure to remove any extra files before
you run this (run "make clean" or so), and also not include any local
changes (such as those to params.h) in the patch file you distribute.

I'm not sure why you did it given that some of the patches already in
contrib do the same.  OK, I understand that it may be quicker to add
the few lines to do it rather than to download and apply a patch.  And
those other patches do more than just that.
