Well, you probably caught Gentoo on the wrong foot here, but generally it is what you thought it was. And IMHO that's the beauty of it. Applying a patch is therefore very easy, you just store the patch file in the appropriate directory and it will automatically be picked up by the build process.

You could also decide to build SeaBIOS from source (it's just a change of a USE flag), but there's a reason why this is not the default and that warning pops up if you have decided to build from source:

==== warning from ebuild =====
You have decided to compile your own SeaBIOS. This is not supported by upstream unless you use their recommended toolchain (which you are not).

If you are intending to use this build with QEMU, realize you will not receive any support if you have compiled your own SeaBIOS. Virtual machines subtly fail based on changes in SeaBIOS.
==== end warning from ebuild =====

In any case thanks for your support, your humour (:-) and I am glad you at least were not shocked by this information,
