	I have installed all the source packages and have also went and downloaded=
 the changelogs
from 1.4-1.4.1 1.4.1-1.4.2 and 1.4.2-1.4.3.  I have diff files that appear =
to be what I need to
upgrade to 1.4.3.  I have tried applying the 1.4-1.4.1 patch in /usr/src an=
d it bails.  I would
give more info, but I'm writing this from my GNU/Linux partition.  Is there=
 some documentation on
how to upgrade piecemeal?  I've done FreeBSD upgrades using CVSup, does Net=
BSD do something
similar?  I'd really like to get up to 1.4.3 for a few reasons, the most im=
portant being the bug
fixes.  Also I'm not able to install the Mutt package in 1.4.  I'll copy do=
wn the make errors and
post them in a seperate message.  I was hoping the upgrade to 1.4.3 would f=
ix the problem.
