Ok, I stepped into the usual trap. If it fails for me, it has to fail for
you also :-(
drwxrwxr-x+ 3 q none 0 Sep 6 22:42 STLport-4.0/
-rwxrwxr-x 1 admins none 3737 Sep 6 22:41 dos_lineends.patch*
$ patch -i dos_lineends.patch -b -p2
patching file STLport-4.0/src/vc_common.mak
Hunk #1 FAILED at 42.
Hunk #2 FAILED at 53.
Hunk #3 FAILED at 63.
3 out of 3 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file STLport-4.0/src/vc_common.mak.rej
This time I attached the output of cygcheck -s -v -r.
As a data point, if I do a
$ dos2unix.exe STLport-4.0/src/vc_common.mak
first, the patch applies cleanly, but this is wrong,
both patch and file are DOS style files with 0D0A lineendings.

It works if I use patch 2.5.8-3
