I just wasted some time in debugging why patches on radius don't apply
until I discovered the pre-patch target, that hides what it does with the

.for FILE in prediff rad.ftp rad.simult rad.skey
        @cd ${WRKSRC}; ${PATCH} -sp <${FILE}.diff 

If people wouldn't be over-paranoid in hiding what the machine does, this
could save some time when debugging things. Thanks!
