In the past I have applied patches from Windows on my Mac. The Apply
Patch dialog has a lot of settings to let you tell it what to do. But I
never had to really do anything on my Mac that I did not have to do on my
Windows machine. I tell it the number of folders to ignore, and
occasionally I had to tell it to ignore whitespace.
