Thanks, I should have made it clear: that's what the patch does
is revert that change.  People building from svn need only to
revert the commit mentioned above. 

For users of meta-distros like Gentoo which are based on the
official-source-tarball-plus-patches model a patch against a
released soruce tarball is the preferred way to temporarily
"fix" something.
