Excellent. Thank you. I had been fixing that by chmod -x'ing
those script files, but not using install -s would work too, as long
as you don't then stop stripping other things. :-) Thanks for
getting that in in the "right" way.

Sadly, no. I just modified it because it needed to be modified.
The patch pre-existed, but wouldn't apply without my change. I
decided against trying to figure out whether it was even needed,
because I assumed someone else may've had a reason I wasn't aware of
for it. I guess I found that what it was looking for may not've been
in config.status anymore. I may well have been wrong. Sadly, I made
this change to [one of] my local tree[s] many months ago, and don't
really remember the process. :-)
Any record of who put patch-ae in there in the first place?
Probably just copied from the one in shells/zsh/patches.
Thanks! I appreciate all of the help.
