Edwin and Roman,
Regarding the patch, there are some path issues for the
installed files, as pointed out in this thread. Additionally,
there are issues with native language and non-roman
character support (here at least) in this release. (At it's
most extreme, linking with the most recent devel/icu2
produces a non-working executable.)
I have been working on figuring these out in my spare
time, as the Configure script is new (and the dev.s new
to it...); so far, no luck. However, the 0.92.2 release is
expected in the next few weeks, and I recently began
working with the dev.s to get these issues fixed
before the release.
Short story: it may be easier to wait the few weeks for
the cumulative patch, and better functionality; if you
wanted to implement it as-is, I mostly be concerned
that the paths are set properly, so future versions
will deinstall, etc., correctly. (You may want to
disable icu too, just in case; patch below.)
Concerning maintainership, I would be honored to
give back to the community by doing this.
