How to patch a file with changing path?

Hi there,

currently i'm trying to package the new alpha of typo3, but there is a
problem: the new upstream tar.gz contains the core of typo3 file in
a directory that has the version in its name
(eg: [/]typo3_src-4.6.0alpha2/t3lib/GPL.txt). There are also some
symlinks into this directory "tslib -> typo3_src-4.6.0alpha2/t3lib".
So if i want to patch GPL.txt, i cannot patch trough the symlink
as quilt wont let me, but i do not want to change all patches every
release to adjust the path of the files...

I'm not sure, how to handle this and need counsel.

There is also a zip available, that does not contain either symlinks
or versioned directories, but i cannot use zip as upstream package.

I use 3.0(quilt) format.

Please set me to CC as i'm not subscribed to the list.

 MfG, Christian Welzel
