Emacs has great diff/merge tools.  And its integration with CVS (and
other revision control systems) is excellent.

Yeah, well, VI pretty much sucks.  Sorry, but it had to be said.  VIM
is pretty good, though.

If you really like purty, pointy clickety thingamabobs, I hear Eclipse
has good CVS tools, and I've used meld, and it is pretty slick for
diffing and merging.  Emacs and pcl-cvs is better for day-to-day
coding and committing if you use CVS.
