Does any one else have to hack the filename of the pre patches so
patch-xemacs will work ?
Is this the case? The pre-patches are generated the same way the
beta-n -> beta-n+1 patches are generated and should work with any
reasonable version of patch.
I know `cvs diff' causes heartache, weeping and gnashing of teeth with
malformed filenames in patches, but this is the first I've heard of
`cvs rdiff' having a problem.
diff -u xemacs-20.0/CHANGES-beta:1.125 xemacs-20.0/CHANGES-beta:1.128

You have to specify `-p1' to patch to make the first part of the path
go away, but that should be all.
