I'm a bit pressed for time till the weekend so can't really give you a decent walkthru to do a good build & install.

Also it's possible nautilus will update again before release so you'd have to do again, a good reason to have a decent understanding, ect.
IF you wish now I'll give you something quick & easy, will take care of all changes for you & give you a slightly higher nautilus version but allow you to be notified if nautilus updates. (at which point we can re-address more verbosely, you don't have to update till ready to redo on your own with patch.
So if inclined now instead of just a patch we'll use a debdiff, this is good as written just for the current 1:3.6.3-0ubuntu14 source only
in terminal -
mkdir nautilus_build && cd nautilus_build
sudo apt-get build-dep nautilus
Leave the terminal open, download attached, extract the debdiff & place in nautilus_build folder as in screen 1
apt-get source nautilus && cd nautilus-3.6.3
Back at terminal -
You should see this -
*removed*, use one in post 26
If so then build packages
~/nautilus_build/nautilus-3.6.3$ patch -Np1 -i ../nautilus_3.6.3-0ubuntu14.1.debdiff
patching file debian/changelog
patching file debian/patches/open_with.patch
patching file debian/patches/series
When done -
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -D -us -uc
should look like in screen 2. Leave the terminal open at "in" prompt & move all the nautius source packages you currently have installed into the 'in' folder, probably only 3 -
cd .. && mkdir in && cd in
The libnautilus-extension-dev & gir1.2-nautilus-3.0_3.6.3-0ubuntu14.1 packages are only needed if you are building other sources that depend on them, if you have them installed then also move into the "in" folder , the nautilus-dbg package you don't need at all. Screen 3 show in folder with the 3 min packages inside.
After moving all needed into the "in" folder back at the terminal which should be at the ~/nautilus_build/in$ prompt -
Should complete without error, if there is it would be from adding to many or too little packages to the "in" folder. In that case adjust & rerun the above command till it completes error free. Then restart nautilus or log out/in & you should be good to go
