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.
Just another guess: Probably it makes a difference if the patchfile patches ./dir/tobepatched and dir/tobepatched. A brief look into other ports shows me that the latter is used. I don't know if it have to be this way or not.
