diff -urP

from the root of the project is usually ideal, or better still the output of 
"svn diff" or "svk diff". Both of those reduce the maintainer's work to

cd /path/to/project/checkout
patch -p0 <patchfile
make test
svk commit

which makes things much more likely to get applied :)

"I've attached this four line diff -c with no filename and two other files you 
need to copy into t/", OTOH, is likely to get it ignored or a re-send asked for.
