System: NetBSD macaran 8.99.9 NetBSD 8.99.9 (MACARAN) #46: Sun Jan 21 21:26:19 EST 2018 dholland@macaran:/usr/src/sys/arch/amd64/compile/MACARAN amd64

I had a patch that removed some files, and I wanted to reverse-apply
it (with -R) to undo some version control lossage, but our patch
fails: it asks for a file to patch, and even if you specify the proper
path for the deleted file by hand it fails.

Using -p doesn't change the behavior.

Had to install gnu patch to do it.


as above
