Here's your poor man's solution:

1. Use 'od' to get a hex dump of your files: od -t x1 (or similar).
2. Use 'diff' to get the difference of the dumps

3. Use Emacs' (M-x) hexl-mode to edit a file in hexadecimal (M-C-x).

The last one is probably not suitable if you have no Emacs experience
previously, but that's how I have solved binary diff and editing lately.
