Ah.  The rumor was, in fact, on Andrew's Web site when he stated his
patches were going to be merged into the main source tree with 21.4.
Bummer if that didn't/doesn't happen and even bigger bummer if Andrew
has stepped aside.  Patching *nix software to be compileable and to
run under OS X/Aqua is non-trivial (easier to make stuff work under
XDarwin since that relies on XFree86).  I may have to learn how to
compile from source after all...
