Sorry Tush, forgot about the separated patches.  Corrected patch file is attached.  This could also be done as a sed, something like:

cp portmap.c portmap.c.orig &&
sed "s/extern int errno;/#include <errno.h>/" portmap.c.orig > portmap.c

Not sure that's 100% accurate, since I'm not looking at the file currently, but since it's as simple as changing one line in one file to fix the current compilation problems, a sed may be more effective.
