   The source code has been fixed, replacing strncpy with memmove in the
forward code.

   I cloned the git repository and followed Eduardo's explicit instructions
to get the latest code from this morning. Then I made alpine-2.21.99.tar.xz
from the source.

   Still have the patch error; it must be with the SlackBuild code and I
don't know enough to fix it. Here are the error report and what I have from
the Slackware-14.2 source directory:

chmod: cannot operate on dangling symlink './web/cgi/detach'
chmod: cannot operate on dangling symlink './web/cgi/alpine/2.0/lib/yui'
chmod: cannot operate on dangling symlink './web/detach'
Hmm...  Looks like a unified diff to me...
can't find file to patch at input line 3
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:

   And in /opt/slackbuilds/alpine/:

alpine-2.21.99.tar.xz                    pinepgp-0.18.0.tar.gz.sig
alpine.SlackBuild*                       pinepgp.pinegpgp.in.diff.gz

doinst.sh.alpine                         slack-desc.imapd
pinepgp-0.18.0-makefile-sed-fix.diff.gz  source-repo/

   More help needed.
