The misc/KE.diff file does not work with patch.  I get this:

/opt/simh$ patch --dry-run --verbose <../unix72/misc/KE.diff
Hmm...  Looks like a unified diff to me...
The text leading up to this was:
|--- makefile.~1~       2006-07-07 14:50:52.000000000 -0400
|+++ makefile   2008-05-01 10:43:20.000000000 -0400
Patching file makefile using Plan A...
Hunk #1 FAILED at 83.
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file makefile.rej
Hmm...  The next patch looks like a unified diff to me...
can't find file to patch at input line 15
