 To quote pkgsrc.txt:
 : One important thing to mention is to pay attention that no RCS IDs get stored
 : in the patch files, as these will cause problems when later checked into the
 : NetBSD CVS tree. Use the pkgdiff from the pkgtools/pkgdiff package to avoid
 : these problems.
 1. Thats not a must
 2. I had to do it manually, because it would have a RCS Id if used pkgdiff
    and that would fail:
 Cannot strip away RCS IDs, please handle manually! 
 src/windiv.c.orig: src/windiv.c and src/windiv.c.orig don't differ
