	The patches are only about 60k, and apply cleanly to the 6.5.1
tarball. Once applied, pgsql will compile as per usual (as stated in the
INSTALL file). So, if you can put some conditional in the pgsql package
build to apply my patch (singular) when doing a compile on alpha, that
would be great.
	If this is what you want to do, let me know, and I will not try
and generate a pgsql alpha deb myself (as Oliver asked in his email). This
will save me time and allow me to move on to actually processing the alpha
patches for the 6.6 pgsql tree.
