Thanks for the pointer.  I applied the cvsup patch, no problem and 
tried to install the ezm3 patch but messed up and kept screwing with it 
to the point where the Makefile.orig no longer resembled the original 
from the distribution.  I need to look around and find the original 
Makefile.  How does one go about re-downloading the files for one 
single port?  I'd use CVSUP, but... :)

Well, I would if I knew how to code! :)
