Here is a full set of install instructions which have the patch converted into 
SED commands so there's no extra download:

Suggested install instructions for GPM Version 1.19.3
 
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
sed s/OPEN_MAX/FOPEN_MAX/ special.c > special.c~ &&
mv special.c~ special.c &&
sed s/"doc contrib"/"contrib"/ Makefile > Makefile~ &&
mv Makefile~ Makefile &&
make &&
make install &&
cp doc/*.1 /usr/local/man/man1/
cp doc/*.7 /usr/local/man/man1/
cp doc/*.8 /usr/local/man/man1/
 
 
EXPLANATIONS:
sed s/OPEN_MAX/FOPEN_MAX/ special.c > special.c~ &&
mv special.c~ special.c &&
        Fixes a bug in the source code
 
sed s/"doc contrib"/"contrib"/ Makefile > Makefile~ &&
mv Makefile~ Makefile &&
        Prevent gpm trying to make the docs which needs TeTex
        Can be ommited if TeTex is installed
 
cp doc/*.1 /usr/local/man/man1/
cp doc/*.7 /usr/local/man/man1/
cp doc/*.8 /usr/local/man/man1/
        These commands install the manual pages (as we didn't fully
build the doc dir).  If TeTex was installed, again these are not needed.
 
 
Based on gpm.txt and gpm2.txt from LFS Hints by  Lee Harris
<mr.1ee at ntlworld.com> and  Marc Heerdink <marc_heerdink at softhome.net>
respectively and also a diff for gpm-1.19.3 subitted by
jeremy at linux-phreak.net.
 
(Note that what'll happen for acknowledgments is that they'll go into an
Appendix in alphabetical order of the person's name - not with the
packages).  This is just so I remember to add them :-)

This is going into cvs if no-one points out any mistakes
