Does this mean I should be OK if pulling pkgsrc down from CVS?  i.e. which

We're currently reviewing the patchset again.

The plan is to send as many fixes upstream as possible.  It does not make 
sense to maintain local hacks, otherwise the software will not get much 
exposure and we want to be part of an app's possible test cycle.
