That is one thing I didn't consider. It has always been beaten into my head that you don't touch the original source and you take the time to create a .patch to be applied though prepare(). I guess this is one instance where it would make sense to actually edit the files in the source-tree directly in order to skip prepare.

Yes, the reference to --repackage was just a way of describing the state of the build directory. Repackaging the same executables hoping something changed is as productive as trying to destroy a shot-put with a rubber hammer... -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
