   I assume this to be the case. Since I'm not a slackware (or SBo) package
builder I don't have the experience to figour out what corrections are
needed in the 2.20 directory so that 2.21.99 (and the forthcoming 2.22)
build properly.

   Renaming all three diff files so they are not seen allowed the
configuration to complete, then the make failed a different reason:

Building with SSL
ln -s ssl_unix.c osdepssl.c
echo -I/usr/include -I/usr/include/openssl -DSSL_CERT_DIRECTORY=\"/etc/ssl/certs\" -DSSL_KEY_DIRECTORY=\"/etc/ssl/certs\" >> OSCFLAGS
echo "  ssl_onceonlyinit ();" >> linkage.c
echo -L/usr/lib -lssl -lcrypto  >> LDFLAGS
cat osdepbas.c osdepckp.c osdeplog.c osdepssl.c > osdep.c
Building OS-dependent module
If you get No such file error messages for files x509.h, ssl.h,
pem.h, buffer.h, bio.h, and crypto.h, that means that OpenSSL
is not installed on your system. Either install OpenSSL first
or build with command: make slx SSLTYPE=none
`cat CCTYPE` -c `cat CFLAGS` `cat OSCFLAGS` -c osdep.c

   The header file is installed here:

   Also looked at the build script without seeing where this might be
