	That's great :) . By the way thanks for all your questions - they motivated 
me to write the reverse regression testing guide :) .

	This problem may happen at other steps too so it isn't specific to the first 
step. I've added Troubleshooting section to the guide on the wiki.

	freetype.c.rej doesn't participate in build process so its (non)existence is 
irrelevant. In other words: you don't need to remove it.

	As stated in http://wiki.winehq.org/ReverseRegressionTesting just 
run "git-checkouf -f" in case of mistake and try to apply patch(es) again.
	It is possible to automatically choose right versions of patches (by writing 
shell script) but personally I do this manually.

	Most likely you tried to apply wrong version of the patch and forgot to 
run "git-checkouf -f" before trying to apply right version of the patch.

	Thank you for using WINE.
