My "diff" file was created using the following method:
1. Seven official patches applied to the original source
2. I applied the diff file of the PIA 2.9
3. I added to cacti.sql the code of pa.sql
4. I ran diff the results obtained with respect to the original source.

Why did this instead of applying the patches from the spec?
1. Pa.sql file was not created.
2. If the package included the IPA, why have the pa.sql? It was more 
logical join the cacti.sql and pa.sql.
3. # rpmbuild --rebuild cacti-0.8.7g-3.rf.src.rpm
     Instalando cacti-0.8.7g-3.rf.src.rpm
