Hm that is interesting.

make patch: there are 3 patches into /file

make makepatch: now the 3 files are removed, but: 

make makepatch
Generated patch-wpagui.cpp
The previous patches have been placed here:

Now I'm confused. After "make patch" and "make makepatch", there is only
one "new" patch in files:

/home/joneum/dev/ports/net/wpa_gui/files # ls

and in work/.makepatch-tmp/archived-patches: # ls
patch-os_unix.c  patch-wpa_ctrl.c patch-wpagui.cpp

Is this now right, that i can only use the new patch in /files? With
"make clean" i delete the work folder and the old patches.
