I'm preparing a tool-chain inside a fresh virtual machine and although the
process pretty quickly informed me about the missing bison and flex binaries it
was just when it was trying to patch the kernel sources (I believe) when it
realized I didn't have a patch binary installed.

I realize you might never early-check all dependencies for what-ever weird
configuration options the user might have chosen, but as this is a pretty basic
one I'm filing this as an enhancement.
