5.0-1.1?? that'd be an NMU of the current coreutils (5.0-1)?
even if the maintainer doesn't respond, there's no need to NMU. there
two bugs in the system (libdiskfs and libc) that prevent coreutils
from building cleanly. by the time we fix them (some years from now ;))
coreutils will be fixed too.
btw upstream applied the patch in coreutils, see the bug log for details
if you mean wether the hacked package is safe, it is 100% safe. all i
changed was an autoconf test that is useless on GNU and deactivated
a pair of tests (from "make check") that were failing.
make: *** No rule to make target `war'. Stop.
