They aren't patches per se, you just use a compiler macro.

I don't think either Mandrake or Debian build with LFS enabled in the
2.0 packages.  It *completely* changes the binary module interface in 
2.0; it wasn't such a big deal in 1.3.

(in fact, building 2.0 for LFS doesn't work until 2.0.49; we had that
bug reported upstream from someone using the SuSE packages who found
that they were subtly broken)
