[Samba] patching 3.0.0 to 3.0.1

Okay, I realize at this point that's it's certainly easier for me to just
compile 3.0.1 from scratch, but I'm irritated that I can't get patch to
work right.  Maybe somebody will lead me in the right direction.  I've
scoured the archives and Google for answers to this, to no avail so far.

I'm running Samba 3.0 on Solaris 9.  I'm hoping that the new release will
help me with some problems I've been having with character conversions
using smbprint.sysv (you will hear more form me if it doesn't).

I do this:

  # cd samba-3.0.0/source
  # make distclean
  # ls patch*
  # gzcat patch* | patch -p0	## GNU patch 2.5.4
  can't find file to patch at input line 4
  Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
  The text leading up to this was:
  |diff -u -r --new-file samba-3.0.0/WHATSNEW.txt samba-3.0.1/WHATSNEW.txt
  |--- samba-3.0.0/WHATSNEW.txt   Wed Sep 24 20:52:54 2003
  |+++ samba-3.0.1/WHATSNEW.txt   Sun Dec 14 22:10:05 2003
  File to patch: ^C
