Unable To Install Patch In Customized Environment

We stored all the files associated with 7.3.1 upgrade into source control and built our development  environments from source control. As a result we do not have a valid pinrev output or a valid vpd.properties file which are required for patches to install. How do we install patches without a valid vpd.properties file?  Note, we also have ThirdParty software configured.

As a work around we can install the patch in an 7.3.1 out-of-box instance and after installation we can move the relevant files associated with the patch into our customized environment and recompile. Is this a valid approach?
