 So then the source downloaded to /home/dcvs. I then got myself a copy
of ral.diff.gz and extracted it to /tmp.
# cd /home/dcvs/src/sys
#patch -p0 /tmp/ral.diff
The patch seemed to apply successfully (although I cannot scroll up
enough to see fully. I know I can press scroll lock then use Page
Up/Down but it doesn't go far enough for me to see. Is there some way
I can increase this?).

better late than never.

I'm surprised that you write the patch applied cleanly since it looks as 
if you tried to apply it to your repository in /home/dcvs (which holds 
the entire history of all source files, not just the current tree).

What you need to do before patching is to checkout a source tree from 
this repository:

# cd /usr
# cvs -d /home/dcvs co src
This creates /usr/src. Try to apply the patch there and follow the 
instructions in the build(7) man page to rebuild your system.
