Well, the patches from OpenBSD add the nice option to keep rejects in
the style as the original patch, e.g. a unified patch results in unified

I'm not sure if NetBSD has the portability stuff for patch implemented,
that would be something necessary to implement in either case.

Otherwise the syntax is mostly identical, only the handling of empty
lines at the end of a patch is IIRC slightly more strict in
DragonFly/OpenBSD compared to NetBSD.
