For me, it depends.
  I tend to get my Oracle software patched the way I want it, and then run the database scripts

For example, going from to and end result of with Oct2007CPU

1. Applied patchset
2. applied OPatch update
3. applied cpu and any other platform specific patches (for linxu 
64-bit, there were several.
4. catupgrade
5. catcpu

we tend to install patchsets in new homes, though (either be reinstalling from scratch, or by cloning the home and then patching).
