In order to apply patches, you would need to recompile the server
using the instructions listed here:

If you don't have the tools/knowledge to do that, then forget about

such as the one included here:
and then read the instructions on how to run patch.

But you might want to instead describe exactly what problem you are
having that you think you need a patch for.  Perhaps someone on the
