alpine with Maildir patch (Macports)

:!: This is a quick and dirty hack :!:

This is how to get alpine (alpine.freeiz.com) from macports (macports.org) patched with a patch not provided by macports.

cd /tmp
wget -c 'http://alpine.freeiz.com/alpine/patches/alpine-2.21/maildir.patch.gz'
port clean alpine
port uninstall alpine
port extract alpine
cd `port work alpine`/alpine-*
gunzip -c /tmp/maildir.patch.gz | patch -p1 
find . -not -user macports -print0 | xargs -0 chown macports:admin
cd 
port build alpine
port install alpine
Unfortunately I a not using this version (2.21) of Alpine myself, as reading S/MIME encrypted e-mails is broken. I have a 2.0 version with Maildir-patch lying around, which still runs well
