I looked at the porter's handbook, and it says that simply dropping the patch into the files directory should get it automatically applied, but it's not. The patch is named patch-aa and is relative to the WRKSRC directory.


Patching the wrong file?

Patching an already patched file?

Patching in wrong direction: old <---> new exchanged by accident?

directory for patch ok? shouldn't it be relative to extracted sources
dir within WRKSRC?

Well, cd'ing into the work directory and then into the source directory and saying:

patch < patchfile

correctly patches the file ./dir/file2bepatched

So, if patchfile is in the files directory, it ough to just work, yes? But it isn't.
