while trying to compile xemacs on solaris patch failed because patch-aj tries
to create a file 'src/m/arm.h' which is already part of the
xemacs-21.1.6.tar.gz archive.
Could someone explain me
1) why this doesn't fail with the NetBSD patch(1) ? does it overwrite
   exiting files when creating a new one ?
2) why there is a patch in the pkgsrc which tries to create an
   already-existing file ?
