I had been searching for a way to ignore white spaces while using vimdiff. Unfortunately, vimdiff -h yields the generic Vim help. I finally found that including the following line in vimrc solves the problem.

set diffopt+=iwhite

From the command line use:

vimdiff -c 'set diffopt+=iwhite' ...

To have vimdiff ignore whitespace while normal vim doesn't, simply put this into your .vimrc:

if &diff
    " diff mode
    set diffopt+=iwhite
endif

To have a toggle way to ignore / not ignore whitespaces in vimdiff, put this into your .vimrc:

 if &diff
     map gs :call IwhiteToggle()<CR>
     function! IwhiteToggle()
       if &diffopt =~ 'iwhite'
         set diffopt-=iwhite
       else
         set diffopt+=iwhite
       endif
     endfunction
 endif
