You can run a search against the keyword search-patches in a package module
to see how patches are included in a package definition. If the patch only
does simple regexp substitution, you can also consider using a phase with
substitute*. There are a lot of packages using that. If you need to have a
patch, then you should add it to the gnu/packages/patches directory, and
also to the file patches variable, so that the build picks it up.
You can search the git log for adding or removing a patch, so that you see
how it is done.
