I usually cd in my local copy of the cvs, then apply the patch using:

patch -p1 <patch-filename.diff

The -p1 option to 'patch' will remove my source directory name from
the patch and will apply cleanly.

The reason I have to do it this way is because I have my own CVS
repository to which I import from time to time on a branch the 2.1-dev
main trunk. This way I can maintain my own local changes under source
control, and don't loose track of the changes. From time to time I
take changes done in this local repository, create a patch and post it
to the mailing list. Unfortunately this does add some overhead in the
whole process, and may cause errors from time to time.
