patchadd writing to the wrong directory

I'm trying to patch a Centrally Stored Forte Compiler
We have NFS links from 
/opt/SUNWspro -> /fileserver/
/opt/SUNWste -> /fileserver/

we apply the patch... patchadd /var/111678-17   and /var/111685-20
It applies successfully

But when we check the /fileserver/ directory no files have been updated


when we check the /fileserver/Forte.OLD/SUNWspro directory files HAVE been updated

As a result we have upset a lot of development work by inadvertently patching the wrong compiler.

any suggestions would be very welcome!
