Here's an updated version of patch-af. The only change since the original
PR is the incorporation of the removal of the hardcoded path to /usr/pkg that
was made in revision 1.2 of patch-af.
Please note: this package has now been broken since Oct. 17, 2002. It
would be _really_ nice to get this fix committed. Thanks!
(NB: the package doesn't build at the moment on -current. I'll submit
a new PR with a fix for that soon.)
