To ask a silly question.  Which version of patch should I be using?  The
diffs for going between gas 950620 and 950704 contained entries of the

diff -u -r --new-file --show-function-line=^[A-Za-z_]
ld-versados/t1.ld ./ld/testsuite/ld-versados/t1.ld
versados/t1.ld   Wed Jun 21 10:15:05 1995
+++ ./ld/testsuite/ld-versados/t1.ld    Mon Jul  3 14:35:18 1995
@@ -278,4 +278,4 @@ SECTIONS
 .PWRV      = 0xfeedface;
\ No newline at end of file

and and I've found that the versions of patch that I've tried (2.0 and
2.1 on SunOS and NetBSD) and 2.1 barf because of a `malformed patch'. 
Is there a newer version of patch that I should be using that saves this
need to handle diffs like the above by hand?

Any help appreciated on this tickler ...
