automating patch4

This is the first time I've put a bind patch into my upgrade automation
system and patch4 doesn't seem to be applying.  It says it cannot find
the file.  When I omit -f (it says the same thing and prompts for the file)
and enter the file path, then it patches OK.  The correct path is in the
patch file so I would think it should find it.  OTOH, it does look kinda
different than other patch files I'd worked with (which all work).  Since
I don't know the patch/diff file format, I cannot diagnose what might be
different about the way patches for bind are made.
