No. I use:

diff --old=http://vtiger.fosslabs.com/svn/vtiger/vtigercrm/branches/5.0.3/@$OLDRELEASE --new=http://vtiger.fosslabs.com/svn/vtiger/vtigercrm/branches/5.0.3/@HEAD 

And patch it by hand. Then you look for DB changes and change the database if

look ahead.

But your deployment differs with the source.
