Okay, I made some progress. Seems that the "patch" is intended to be
used by the "patch" command, which will be in charge of updating the C
source file. Problem... I searched Synaptic for "roller". I found the
file-roller program, but not the the source code ! :o(
I do have the "source" repositories enabled, but still can't find it.
I thought I could maybe just get some source from the programs website,
but shocking, can't find it anywhere at  nor , can't believe it :-/
