Not sure what you mean. I don't see it in the patch.

I think it was used correctly in this context. I use "Linux" if
1) it's about the kernel or kernel-specific features (e.g. ext2 undelete)
2) "Linux" is used in the distribution name.
GNU/Linux is appropiate to denote the build system plus the kernel (which
was the case in the document) or the whole OS.
I'm applying your patch without this part.

I'm sorry, but I have no time to investigate.

GCC is an extreme case. It may be hard to compile it if you don't already
I think that MC should follow the policy of GNOME with regard to the
binary releases if it uses the GNOME ftp server.
