Yes, you are right.  If I do:

for i in debian/patches/*patch; do patch -Np1 -i  $i; done
./configure --prefix=/usr --bindir=/bin --without-included-regex
make check

I get the two failures as before. :(

If I only apply debian/patches/64-egf-speedup.patch, I get the two 
failures and 10 others.

Maybe we should just pull the patch out of the book until we get a new 
patch that passes everything.
