In order for me to do this will I need to install RCS or do I just download the file, do a diff or do I just replace the old configure.in with the new configure.in
Sorry not sure on how to do this. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.
For a patch as simple as the one I posted, it's easiest to manually apply it (if you're unfamiliar with the `patch` program).
diff -u -r1.27 configure.in
-u means that it's in unified diff format.
--- configure.in 22 Feb 2004 22:17:41 -0000 1.27 +++ configure.in 24 Feb 2004 17:06:26 -0000
This part indicates that the old file was dated 2004-02-22 and is version 1.27 in CVS. The new file is dated 2004-02-24 and hasn't been checked into CVS yet.

This line is added in its place. If you look closely, you'll see that it's just a matter of editing configure.in, going to line 199, finding the "extralibflags" line and adding " -lnsl -lsocket" to it. Based on other posts, you may need to add " -lm" as well.

The other lines displayed are to help the patch program (or a person reviewing the patch or manually applying it) identify which section of code it affects.
