Ahh, looks like you're right. I'm using the patch version in CLFS 
(2.5.9). I just compiled patch 2.5.4 and tried it, and the patch did 
apply with the message you described...

chris at chris:~/qt-x11-free-3.3.8$ ~/patch-2.5.4/patch -Np0 -i 
(Stripping trailing CRs from patch.)
patching file src/codecs/qutfcodec.cpp
(Stripping trailing CRs from patch.)
patching file src/tools/qstring.cpp

I suppose this is just a case of not following the book exactly, though 
I don't remember seeing any issues with the later patch version before. 
Sorry if I just caused a bunch of noise on the lists...
