Forcing return-path in t3lib_htmlmail is now turned of by default. CAn be enabled in the install tool.
Mailtesting in the install tool can now be done with t3lib_htmlmail instead of a direct call to mail().

* The earlier attempts to fix the problem of Return-Path with Postfix below version 2.0 seems not to work on all systems. The t3lib_htmlmail class now only forces the return-path if forceReturnPath is enabled in the install tool.
* Added an option to the install tool mail test form. Send the testmail via t3lib_htmlmail with the return-path set to null@<HTTP_HOST>.

* Fixed bug #0000941: The diff feature was disabled on Windows but works fine if diff.exe is present and TYPO3_CONF_VARS[BE][diff_path] is correctly set
