# @ECLASS-VARIABLE: ESVN_PATCHES
# subversion eclass can apply patches in subversion_bootstrap().
# you can use regexp in this variable like *.diff or *.patch or etc.
# NOTE: patches will be applied before ESVN_BOOTSTRAP is processed.
This is the description I read ESVN_BOOTSTRAP is not fetching the
sources it runs commands like autogen.sh and the like. So the sources
are already fetched and copied to WORKDIR.
Where did you get your description?

Don't know, but you don't need epatch just specify ESVN_PATCHES.
