Well, technically, that's the correct way, but:

- it seems that for whetever the reason, diff seems to think original
  files are empty
- there's no point of diffing files like i.e. configure or Makefile.in,
  as they are auto-generated (in this case from configure.ac and
  Makefile.am respectively)
- as I mentioned, dirs like .deps or autom4te.cache are just side
  effects of the build, so their content is of no interest

Try generating the patch again, just check its content before you send
