This works on my Debian machine. Your mileage may vary.
Note: If the patches references the file os.c, you need to either have ran a complete build (which links os.c to the correct file for your system), or to enter the "real" name when patch asks for it (i.e: osdep/os-lnx.c for Linux systems).
This problem, which mainly affected Linux systems, was fixed with the 4.20 release, so it should no longer be a problem. (The 4.20 version, however, had a small bug which caused window resizing not to work. A patch that fixes the problem is available).
