Sorry, no.

Instead of trying to do all that by hand, why not just use the latest
CVS tar?  It has the patch installed.  It might be a bit harder to get
started (since you need CVS etc), but it should be easier in the long
run.  Here's how to get started:

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/tar co tar
cd tar
make check

You shouldn't get any test failures.  (I don't, on my Debian stable
x86 host; I just did the above.)  For more details, please see
