Neither.  It doesn't have to be an unfriendly fork.   Just one that
thinks about arch issues (of which there are now a few).

I've mostly given up on dealing with the GNU maintainers of core apps
-- but perhaps or perhaps not that is premature in this case.

The GNU page for patch,, offers no
contact points.


p.s.: personally, I think that undergrad education should consist of
things like clean-rooming the core apps and kernels -- but undoubtedly
that is a minority view (at the moment).
