Why won't 'patch' install the patch that ISC has sent me?

If ISC has sent you a patch to apply to your current version of one of our products, it will be a source code diff or rdiff.

The GNU patch tool is used to apply patches to ISC's source code - then you build the binaries as you normally would from the patched source.

But the Solaris environment already provides another patching utility with the same name, so in the Solaris environment the GNU patch tool is named gpatch instead.
