You have to do nothing at all, I think. It's just that the change of
allowed characters will correctly process your patch files. To my
knowledge, it should have not worked before. (?)
When I do "bmake distinfo" in devel/gdb6 using the old pattern
[A-Za-z0-9] the distinfo file is 115 bytes and contains no patches. When
I then change the pattern to be [A-Za-z0-9_] the patches are included.
So I just wonder how you got the patches into the distinfo file.
And, just FYI: Everything I write here are just suggestions. They are
not yet accepted by anyone with CVS write access. I even first expect
some discussion about whether it is useful and how to correct the bugs
in it. (I've found yet another.)
