Waking up from a little siesta (yes...), that's what I thought too...
No: directories and files belong to "user user", and the PATCH did create the 
user@machin:/...../bin/QT/qt-x11-free-3.3.8b$ ls -l q*.*.*

I tryed openning the diff file with Konqueror: looks OK too!

Bizarre: I decided to try as root: I open another terminal (konsole kdesu), 
cd..., patch... Of course, patch did not work, and the six files created are 
owned by "root" and are -rw-r-r-. Continuing to prepare this e-mail, I 
thought that I should remove these files "root" that might embarrass me later 
if I forgot. But I selected the wrong console and typed the "rm" commands in 
the console using  user's rights... the files were deleted after confirmation 
(write protected)! A feature of SELinux?

I dont know if I'll ever succeed in compile and run TDE on my machine, but the 
prospect of using a system with SELinux me anxious. Even if it is possible to 
disable... A deactivated bomb is still a bomb.

Good luck to everyone,

NB: I wil put the following post, if any, in the devel list.
