Sorry for previously posting on R-help. 

Thanks to a few people for pointing out -p 0 on patch, but that was not enough (at least under Solaris). It seems Solaris tries to figure out which of the two files is to be updated, and if it finds them both then it starts asking for names. What I actually had to do was

1/ mv R-0.50-a1  R-0.50-a2
2/ cd R-0.50-a2
3/ patch -p 0 <R-0.50-a1.patch

If you 
 cp -r R-0.50-a1  R-0.50-a2
rather than mv, then you must rename R-0.50-a1 or the above mentioned problem occurs.
