"patch" is a binary that the build system uses.
So you need to install the package that contains "patch",
and how to do so depend on your distribution.

When you miss "patch" I guess that you will miss a lot
of other fundamental utilities.
Please see if you can find some high-level development package to install,
so you get gcc, binutils, flex, bison etc. installed in one go.
