Gnu patch is available for OS/2.  It can be found on hobbes as

OS/2 ships with a patch.exe, so one needs to take measures to ensure that
the correct patch.exe is invoked.  I rename patch.exe to gnupatch.exe.

To apply a patch, it is usually sufficient to run

 gnupatch -p0 <patchfile

from the top level Octave install directory.  If the Octave install is
sufficiently non-standard the -p level may need to be higher.  Dushan
should review a couple of the path tutorials available on the net.
