Makefile: Trouble with EXTRA_PATCHES

I am trying to modify a Makfile to add a specific patch that is contained 
within a gzipped tarball. I can get the file downloaded, and unpacked and 
defined within the Makefile. What I cannot do is get the patch to apply. The 
make procedure keeps asking me what file to patch:
 ===> Patching for <package>
===> Applying extra patch 
File to patch: 
 I know the full path to the file that needs to be patched, but how can I 
tell make how to do this automatically. 
 Thank You,
Brian A. Kee
