security/putty fails to build on systems using gcc4, such as NetBSD-current or NetBSD-4.

The problem is gcc4, which complains more than previous versions and this package likes to compile with -Werror.


cd /usr/pkgsrc/security/putty && make


We could just remove -Werror from the makefile, but I have looked at the patches that already exist for this package, and it looks like it is preferred to patch the source code to fix the code that generates  the warnings.  Thats fine with me.

I have created a set of patches that will address the warnings and allow putty to compile fine on my NetBSD-current system.  Four of them are new, one of them replaces a current patch (patch-aj).

I will include the patches in a gzipped tarball in a reply to this PR.  If they dont come through, just email me, I should provide them qickly.
