	All patches are known to apply cleanly to the base snapshot tree,
when applied in sequential order.  I suggest you unarchive the tarball
again, mv the patches to this directory, start the patching by:

# gzip -cd 1.7.75-*.patch.gz | patch -p1

If you have files that aren't gzip'd, use:

# cat 1.7.75-*.patch | patch -p1

	If this doesn't work for you , verify that the file type correctly
matches the extension.
