Something (I forget what) broke rather badly with one or other of the 
patches, possibly an artefact of something else in 
/src/ports-i-love-libtool/* on my devel box.

I've been stuck in $REALJOB hell for a while, so haven't really had a 
chance to track down what went wrong, but I'm kinda worried about 
putting those patches in before 4.9, when the whole lot is in the 
process of a getting a major facelift (COMPONENTS="..." and -- from an irc conversation a while back).

If there's time, and portmgr@ is willing to commit to a 4-exp build 
with just those two patches in to see what breaks, then go for it...
