./circle/ and ./circle30bpl11/ are the two directories that the person
making the patch kept his files in.  One of them is the stock code and the
other is the changed code.  Diff then creates a patch by what the newer
files have that the other ones don't.

Like I keep my stock code in:
/mud/wrk/circle30bpl11/stk and all my projects in
/mud/wrk/circle30bpl11/xxx so my patches have ../stk and . for directories.
