  Speaking of diffs I grabbed the latest diffs for imlib, gnome-libs,

  Gnome-libs, gnome-media, gnome-objc all failed with a malformed patch
error. Imlib and mc failed also, but after looking at the '.rej' I
realized it was due to running libtoolize --force (imlib) and applying
a patch from the list (mc), after unpacking my original tarballs they
applied fine. The others all applied fine first time around.

  Maybe someone should take a look at the diffs for gnome-libs, gnome-media
and gnome-objc and double-check them or maybe it was just something in
the transfer when I got them ? 

  Long live diffs ! Except for gnome-libs, the other packages I had to
get tarballs instead of diffs for were relatively small. Sure is nice to
just to patch something like enlightenment, etc. vs going out and getting
monster tarballs everytime upgrades come out.
