Actually, there's no need to unpack the entire source distro just to
patch a few functions.  It's enough to unzip only the few source files
that need to be patched, run the Patch utility to patch them, then
compile them and replace the old versions in the library by running
the `ar' utility.

I believe the FAQ explains how to do that in section 21.4.
