I notice that http://printing.kde.org/downloads/ has version 20060221,
and your patch 20050907toDebian.diff applies with just an offset:

$ patch < ~/20050907toDebian.diff 
patching file poster.c
Hunk #2 succeeded at 1014 (offset 49 lines).
Hunk #3 succeeded at 1072 (offset 49 lines).
Hunk #4 succeeded at 1102 (offset 49 lines).

The poster ChnageLog says:

2006-02-19 Manfred Paulus <manfred.paulus@googlemail.com>
    * option: added -C option for switching clipping facilities
    * option: added -O option for setting content overlap
    * output: make postscript functions out of read in
              page descriptions instead of copying the code
              for every output page
    * pages:  corrected sizes of ISO A and B formats

Is there a reason that you didn't use the 2006 version but rather the
2005 version?

Let me know and I'll upload the correct one ASAP.
