I tried svnpatch-diff branch on Windows XP.

I got the followging error when patching.
D:\...>svn patch out.txt
patching file build.conf
patching file www/hacking.html
Assertion failed: hunk, file ../patch-2.5.9-src/patch.c, line 354

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.
svn: No 'patch' program was found in your system. Please try
to use --patch-cmd or 'patch-cmd' run-time configuration
option or manually use an external tool to apply Unidiffs.
svn: External program is missing

patch program is usaually not available on Windows.
'svn diff' command also has '--diff-cmd' option, but it uses built-in
diff if the option is omitted.

I think 'svn patch' also should use built-in patch if '--patch-cmd'
option is omitted.

These are the detailed steps which I tried.

1. checkout http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/branches/svnpatch-diff
2. merge all from trunk to the working copy.
   (because I can't compile the branch on r33217)
3. compile and install it.
4. "svn diff --svnpatch > out.txt" on the working copy.
5. checkout the branch as a new working copy.
6. 'svn patch out.txt" to the new working copy.
7. I got the error.
