Hi!

Yes, but this way it keeps the diff small. I can remove the autoconf garbage
via the install script, but I thought the source package is for developers
they should know what they do. I should change the "Build instructions" part
of gnupg.README to:
-------------
Build instructions:
   unpack gnupg-1.0.7-X-src.tar.bz2
     if you use setup to install this src package, it will be
	 unpacked under /usr/src automatically

- To rebuild the binary and sourrce archiv type:
$ cd /usr/src
$ ./gnupg-1.0.7-1.sh all

This will create:
   /usr/src/gnupg-1.0.7-X.tar.bz2
   /usr/src/gnupg-1.0.7-X-src.tar.bz2

- To get the modified source to build the cygwin executables type:
$ cd /usr/src
$ ./gnupg-1.0.7-1.sh prep

This will unpack and patch gnupg to:
   /usr/src/gnupg-1.0.7-X
-------------

After the prep you can change, patch or modify whatever you like and issue
a "./gnupg-1.0.7-1.sh spkg" afterwards. You will get a small gnupg-1.0.7-1.diff
in a new source package. Befor your next "gnupg-1.0.7-1.sh all" just remove
"gnupg-1.0.7-X.*" .

If the preferable way is a big patch and no auto* stuff, just say so and I
will change it. Also please name any problem in the source package.

Bye
    Volker
