At the moment, pkgsrc/bootstrap does not require a patch program on the
target platform.
Trying to apply your patches on Unixware revealed that their patch program
does not understand the "unified" format. I think patch on Solaris
behaves the same way or at least did on older versions.

Either we require "patch" (understanding one of the older formats) or we
cannot use patches for bootstrapping.
