	In Chapter 5 installing patch, there isn't a CPPFLAGS=-D_GNU_SOURCE
./configure etc.  Whereas in chapter 6 there is.  If this is not added to
the version of patch in the book, it will build a broken patch on the 
powerpc platform.  I have tested it, and know it will build a broken patch.
In newer versions of patch available on it is fixed.
