If my changes are on a branch named mybranch, would the command be
craft --set version=mybranch kdiff3
Or does "version=master" just mean local rather than remote copy, so that as long as I have branch mymaster in the working directory (in the git sense) it will be built when I use version=master?

Best way is to work on git for those changes.
craft --set version=master kdiff3
A rebuild is then triggered with craft -i kdiff3, git sources are not reset.
Gperf is a binary package and has no sources, also packages restored from cache have no src dir.

Subject: Modifying source
Supposing that someday I am able to build kdiff3 on Windows and I want to modify the source and rebuild, how do I do that?
I have a couple of concerns. The first is that if I say craft kdiff3 the source will be refetched from the internet, so my changes would be irrelevant.
Second, I did cs gperf for a package that seemed to have been built correctly. The commmand changed to a directory, but the directory was empty.
cb gperf attempted to change to a subdirectory of the one from cs; since it was empty, this failed.
