Well, that's how I have it setup but the patch does not get applied.

I see the "Patching $($(PKG)_DIR_PREFIX)/$($PKG)_NAME)" message but when
I examine the source the patch is not present.

I think the problem is related to the FIXME note above the rule. I'm
trying to apply a patch to a package that is not supplied in buildroot.
To keep it separate I have the package in package/customize/<package

Any ideas on how to fix the FIXME?

Thanks for the reply,
