I don't know of any way to express a "file deletion" in a patch file.

The rest of the patch data can be easily generated by using "p4 diff2 -u ... at 1492 ...#have" in order to get a patch between changelist 1492 and the currently synced version.

Is there an easy way to generate the following from Perforce?

Here's what I'd like to know:
How can I generate Linux patch files with Perforce on a directory that has been modified with file additions, file deletions, and edits?   There should be a patch file for each change list which affected the desired directory.  I should be able to apply the generated patch files on the set of files that was first checked into Perforce in order to re-create the current state of the directory.
I hope what I want is clearly expressed in the above description.
