You need only one of the patch-XXX.sh files.  I leave older ones on my ftp
site for some other developers.  The xxx-patch.gz files are weekly patches,
which you can ignore.

Assume ncurses-5.3.tar.gz and patch-5.3-20030719.sh are in the current
directory.  The script assumes you have installed GNU patch (2.54 works),
and have uudecode in your path.

gzip -dc ncurses-5.3.tar.gz |tar xf -
cd ncurses-5.3
sh ../patch-5.3-20030719.sh
