It doesn't matter, I'll just have to do it twice.
I have to patch the latest release -- otherwise we won't get it until
the next release and subsequent import into ports.  Plus it's more
important to get FPC bootstrapped at this point.

I think the patches would apply to a dev branch without too much trouble
