On compiling a program, i get error

checking for patch... no
configure: error: You need patch utility to prepare sources.

This is due to program "patch" not installed on the server.

The server was Fedora 7, so i searched "patch" at

Find the rpm for patch, downloaded and installed it.

rpm -ivh patch-2.5.4-29.2.2.i386.rpm

Or install from yum

yum install patch
