Is there changes.diff kept up to date, regularly?

On the Linux version the patch has failed for me a number of times, so I
had to get the source directly from a local Git mirror. Including the
option to get the source from a local Git mirror will save a lot of
bandwidth. If the boot strapping FPC is not changed, then it may be better
to test for its presence and skip the download and extraction as well.
There is no sign that it ever gets changed by the script once it is
