There is no need to diff, and you can select some directories to kill.
You will need some file created shortly before the install starts. In
this example I have used the package build directory.

find . \( -path ./dev -o -path ./proc -o -path ./usr/src \) -prune -o '!'\
   -type d -newer /usr/src/package -fprintf /var/log/intall/package '/%P\n'
