At the time I wrote the "patching" in Makefile we were using svn. I even
included instructions on how to generate the patch file for submission.

Now when we are using git, the procedure should be fixed. I think all you
have to do is put a -p0 on the "patch" command line (In Makefile). Please
experiment with it and send a patch to fix the Makefile. (Do you need that
I do it? Just that I haven't checked out a tree for a year)
