Well, I guess, Stephan knows very well, what the fuzz is about: it's
about hundreds of patches, which will have to be regenerated, done as
an employment-creation measure for this lazy gang of packagers.

And here comes the the question:
And how do I create a correct patch ?
I used to do "diff -ruN dir-orig dir"

Is that OK ?

Sure, the problem only occurs, if the files had changes *after* the patch
was created. patch is tolerant about those changes to a certain degree (see
man patch, option -F), while rpm by policy doesn't inherit this tolerance
anymore.
