Subject: Re: error compiling patch  "md5 gen 2" with

This was documented in the patch release as something that 'happens'.  The 2 
patches simply deal with the same area of the options.h file, and the patch 
will fail.  There is a file created ./src/options.h.rej which shows the part 
of the file that NEEDS patched, but was not patched.

I have included the options.h file (hopefully the attachment will make it 
through).  This options.h contains the 'proper' patching.  However, it 
should NOT be used other than working around this patch failure by someone 
who does not know how to read a patch reject file.
