patching problem

i'm having problems with applying most patch files ... the format for 
the type of error i'm getting is

patch: ******malformed patch at line 92: "ogram\r\n");

looking at the patch file, it looks like there's a break at the end of 
the previous line between
pr and ogram so i manually fixed that and reapplied the patch, but 
there was a similar problem below that, etc.  i tried running patch 
with the --ignore-whitespace option but that didn't work.  i'm using 
bash 2.05a in debian.  i'm sure there's an easy way to get around this, 
but i've been reading man pages and archived mailing lists for a few 
hours now and am at wits end.  thanks for any advice.
