Subject: [gentoo-alt] Any procedure to test a quick patch to a package?
Date: Wed, 12 Dec 2012 18:09:52

While trying to install Prefix in Cygwin I ran into a problem which is 
very easy to correct.  I guess I should open a bug report about the 
Python-patched package, but I would really appreciate if someone points 
me to a quick modify & test procedure (for instance: modify the 
downloaded package; I think I already tried that, with libz, but the 
problem there may be the extension, libz-1.2.7.tar.bz2 doesn't exist in 
the repository, but there is a .gz package which I downloaded and the 
script ignored).

The problem:

$ ./
2012-12-11 15:35:37 (192 KB/s) - `python-2.7.2-patched.tar.bz2' saved 
warning: 'PyExc_BlockingIOError' redeclared without dllimport attribute: 
previous dllimport ignored
undefined reference to `__imp__PyExc_BlockingIOError'
