A couple of things.  Please don't compress something as small as this.  It is 
only 2840 bytes uncompressed.

Second, looking at the patch, I think a simple

   sed -i  s/getline/procmail_getline/  src/{fields.c,formail.c,formisc.{c,h}}

or probably

   sed -i  s/getline/procmail_getline/ src/*.{c,h}

would work just as well without the overhead of a patch.
