 The file transfer program path patch/config failure was my fault.
 I installed your alternate patch-ae file, generated a correct SHA1
 signature and pasted it into 'distinfo'.  The procedure I used was:
 cd .../comms/minicom/patches
 cp .../patch-ae .         # copy from where I save the attached file
 wc patch-ae               # note line count 'lc'
 tail -(lc-1) patch-ae | digest >> ../distinfo
 vi ../distinfo            # replace old patch-ae signature with new one
 cd ..
 bmake install
 And it built and installed without complaint.
 I'm now curious about the original patch-ae file--if its just a problem
 with the SHA1 signature being improperly generated.  Will update to
 get that back and try again.
