Ok, it's much better.  It basically compiles file now, but a few problems:

- the patches don't apply with Solaris patch, must use GNU patch
- the configure script use 'echo -n' which Solaris echo does not have
- perhaps change the install path to /usr/local/X11R6/AfterStep instead of
  /usr/local/bin, since there are many like programs
- problems with flex, and missing types.h and  I first

Compiler/lexin:2: No such file or directory
Compiler/lexin:3: types.h: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [lex.yy.o] Error 1

then subsequently received:

In file included from Compiler/lexin:3:
Compiler/types.h:35: ../../configure.h: No such file or directory
Compiler/types.h:36: ../../include/module.h: No such file or directory
Compiler/types.h:37: ../../include/aftersteplib.h: No such file or

After adding an additional '../' to that path, it fully compiled

Also, why not mirro the patches as well, so I don't have to go to cz to
get them! ;)

Finally, some of the patches used AfterStep-1.5beta3, and others used
AfterStep-current, making a 'gzip -dc *' impossible.
