To apply a patch, you do not need two trees, and you do not need to
match the top-level directory names to those seen in the patch file.
Rather, you may do something like:

cp -a cluts cluts-to-patch
cd cluts-to-patch
patch -p1 < ../patch-file

or just:

cd cluts
patch -p1 < ../patch-file

but the first approach may be preferable if you haven't yet made the
determination to fully apply the patch to your tree (so you want to
experiment on a copy first).

Here are some instructions/examples on how to generate patches and how
to apply them:

You may want to experiment with this for your own changes to cluts -
just so that you know how it works - before you apply a patch provided
to you by someone else.
