Does this include all the patches that have been flying around for NSK?
I've been meaning to apply those, but between some in gnulib, some in
coreutils, and some that need manual filtering to apply at all, I
haven't gotten to it.
That release includes a snapshot of gnulib state from
the day of the release.  So, yes, it should have all of
the patches mentioned on this list and on bug-gnulib.

It has all the patches that have been applied to gnulib,
but it doesn't have this patch:


Matthew, you need to apply only the lib/* part for
coreutils, to save you the hassle of rerunning Autoconf etc.

(Which would be good since I don't think I *have* autoconf on this platform :-).)

If the above patch works for you, please let us know.

I was able to get a build to complete in m4's lib/ (using the lib/* sources from coreutils-6.4, and after hacking on stdint_.h because I was using the old Makefile*'s), after dealing with the outstanding bug mentioned in the thread I just started on gnulib's list. I have to go somewhere pretty quick so I may not get to the rest of m4 (and I haven't even started coreutils yet) tonight, but I wanted to let you know.

FYI: You probably know this, but the patch you pointed me at did not apply at all (I think one hunk in total went through), so I had to apply the changes by hand.

Thanks again.
