[Perlfect-search] Is it possible to have multiple copies of perlfect on the same site?

Does anyone know how to add the patches to a copy of the search without
using Unix?  I'm on NT but would like to add the multi-boost.diff, but don't
know how to "patch" it.  I searched ActiveState's website and can't seem to
find a patch program....  Anybody?

Thanks!

Mike
