netbsd's patch(1)

I started to package it, with autotools:

I added strlcat.c, strlcat.h, strlcpy.c, and strlcpy.h, so everyone can use it 
(configure needs to check if you have them in libc). I used the strlcat from 
openbsd because netbsd's has assertions checking, and needs modification to 
work with Linux. I'm adding gcc4 stuff, like fortify_source and -fpie, to 
configure. And I fixed the -Dlint thing. I'm planning to call it 'npatch' 
(netbsd patch).

It compiles with '-format=2 -Wshadow -Wall -Werror -Wfatal-errors' btw.
