solaris patch vs. linux patch


Just wondering if anybody knows why solaris patch refuses to process the bdb 4.7 patch files, where the patch command on linux works perfectly.

Ie: on solaris :

patch -p0 <patch.
  Looks like a context diff to me...
Hunk #1 failed at line 187.
Hunk #3 failed at line 296.
2 out of 4 hunks failed: saving rejects to sequence/sequence.c.rej

Works fine on a linux machine ?

Have tried patch 2.5.9 built from soruce on gnu.org, this fails also.

(i usually end up patching on linux, and then copying the patched tarball back to solaris.. but just wondering?)
