Generating incremental diffs

I need to generate diffs between my previous patch and the current one. 
Unsuprisingly (as Alexander is on vacation), the previous patch was not 

When diffing against CVS, I usually just do "cvs diff -u". In this case, 
I have checked out a new tree from CVS, applied the old diff on that 
tree (so I have a tree that is the way CVS would look if my previous 
patch was applied). Now what?

I tried running "diff -u -r wine.ref wine". The problem is that this 
generated tons of diffs in files in the "CVS" directory. Don't ask me 
why there were differences there.

Any other ideas? I know other people have done this before...
