Yes.  You should always be in the source directory you're patching,
when you apply a patch.  The only question is whether you need to use
patch -p0 or patch -p1.  And the only way you'll know that is by reading
the patch itself.

In the case of Chet's bash patches, it's always -p0.

(I'm saying this mostly for anyone reading the archives, since this is
a common point of confusion.)
