Hi all

I'm learning to build ncurses-5.6 from sources (ie. outside of ports) on i386 
FreeBSD 7.0 (RELENG_7).

As the first step, I want to make sure I patch the ncurses-5.6.tar.gz 
correctly. Here is what I do:

1. Download ncurses-5.6.tar.gz from http://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/ncurses/
2. Download patches from ftp://invisible-island.net/ncurses/5.6/

3. Unpack
    tar xzf ncurses-5.6.tar.gz
    cd ncurses-5.6

4. Patch
    sh ../patch-5.6-20080621.sh
    patch -Np1 -i ../ncurses-5.6-20080628.patch
    patch -Np1 -i ../ncurses-5.6-20080705.patch
    patch -Np1 -i ../ncurses-5.6-20080712.patch
    patch -Np1 -i ../ncurses-5.6-20080713.patch
    patch -Np1 -i ../ncurses-5.6-20080726.patch
    patch -Np1 -i ../ncurses-5.6-20080804.patch

5. Post patch
    sed -i '' -e 's,$(INSTALL_PROG) ncurses-config,@INSTALL_SCRIPT@ 
ncurses-config,' misc/Makefile.in
    rm -rfv tack Ada95/src/terminal_interface-curses.adb mkinstalldirs

Here are my questions:
1. Have I patched correctly? Are there anymore patches to apply or have I patch 
too much?

2. Are there anymore Post patch actions to be performed?

Your help in this regard is very much appreciated and many thanks in advance.

Kind regards
