No, I didn't know that.

What happens if you omit that patch entirely?  If it works without the
patch, then we don't need to worry about that patch.

I'm quite certain I remember it bombing (there are 'unsigned long long's sprinkled in there without it). But I am guessing the problem is just that CVS is a little off of coreutils-6.4, which is what I was trying to patch. I think the main problems were things like 'HAVE_LONG_LONG' vs. 'HAVE_LONG_LONG_INT' which caused 'patch' to reject most of the hunks. Applying the patches by hand was fine and (as I stated on bugs-m4) gave a successful build that passed 'make check'.
