To test the patch file I did the following:

git diff master > file.patch
git checkout master
git branch test
git checkout test
git apply < file.patch

And I see:
error: patch failed: src/libFLAC/libFLAC_dynamic.vcproj:268
error: src/libFLAC/libFLAC_dynamic.vcproj: patch does not apply
error: patch failed: src/libFLAC/libFLAC_static.vcproj:243
error: src/libFLAC/libFLAC_static.vcproj: patch does not apply

Maybe it's a minor glitch in Windows version if Git.
It seems that it automatically converts LF to CRLF in text files
during clone/pull, but .vcproj files already use CRLF as line endings,
and this somehow results in this problem.
