First, the only problem with your patches is really not a problem
with the patches - it's a problem with the commit messages on
them.  Everything else is fine.  Basically, your commit messages
need to be like we do in the git repo, e.g.:

  academic/chemtool: Updated for version whatever.
  academic/chemtool: Build fixes for deprecated libsomething.

As I told you on IRC, you'll likely find http://progit.org handy,
but for now, if tarballs are easier, you can send them directly
to me - do *not* send them to the list.  Note: for the other
maintainers, don't send me tarballs without first contacting me
and making sure it's okay.  

Second, with all of that out of the way, I have a question about
gchemutils: does it really require seamonkey to build the mozilla
plugin now, or will it build with the mozilla-nss related stuff
that is now part of Slackware?

The other three patches have been applied.
