You need to patch from the source tree's root, not from your build
dir. That should also be described on the WorkingWithPatches wiki

You can put patch files anywhere you like, and you can name them with
any extension or name you like. It's a plain text file format, and
patch recognizes its file using the content of the file. It's usual
practise to use the extension diff or patch.
