	Excellent.  Thanks, Jolan.

	However, I have one patch that is still a pain in the ass - it
patches a Makefile, and that Makefile hasn't been generated at the time
the patch process runs.  This process doesn't work for this patch, it
fails:


===>  Patching for nagios-1.0b6
===>   Applying OpenBSD patch patch-cgi_Makefile
Hmm...  Looks like a unified diff to me...
The text leading up to this was:
--------------------------
|$OpenBSD$
|--- cgi/Makefile.orig  Sun Nov 10 03:37:10 2002
|+++ cgi/Makefile       Sun Nov 10 03:43:08 2002
--------------------------
File to patch: 


	Thoughts/suggestions most welcome.  :)
