There were no error messages.

Then, being the incredibly brilliant person I am, I tried again, this
time after taking the blindingly obvious step of deleting the 'work'

This seems to be a key part of the process.

The patch doesn't install correctly, as the make process generates the

     HttpHeader.cc:127: error: 'ftSTr' was not declared in this scope
     *** Error code 1

and halts after a few more errors, but at least that indicates that
*something* is happening with the patch file.

This smells like progress.
