Ensuring epatch works correctly on embedded Gentoo

On my BeagleBoard, the ebuild messages were telling me that the patches had been applied successfully, but inspection of the code showed they hadn’t. It was a nasty problem to fix – it seems like a epatch wasn’t liking the cross-compiled bash.

After compiling bash natively and getting a another shell, the epatching was successful.
