You need to remove the eyecup, and you can see the adjustment wheel - I frankly find it cumbersome to hit the sweet spot. It's actually the only slight step backwards I have experienced from the 1DsII, and can't figure out why they changed it, though there's probably some obscure reason ...

Probably because the diopter wheel on the I and II series bodies need to be taped in place or they get readjusted for you in your camera bag.

Interesting - I never had that problem with my 1DsII. I do like the fact it's under the eyecup, but I find adjusting the wheel very cumbersome as it is currently laid out.
