Downloading the complete sets of sources for 1.4.3 would definitely take a while.  I don't mind compiling on my end for each increment, this machine is pretty quick.  From what I've read on some past mail, going from 1.4.3 is tricky.  For that I'll use a different approach.  So where can I apply these patches:

Assuming you have the 1.4 sources extracted in /usr/src:
cd /usr/src
patch -p1 < /tmp/diff-1.4-to-1.4.1.gz
etc ...

Just a guess, I didn't try :)
