I'm running Gentoo Linux and thus use Gentoo portage for package
management. They're usually rather quick with integrating new packages
but right now 1.6.1_pre1 is the most recent.

It's because it would be rather simple for me to inject the patch into
the build script for 1.6.1_pre1 (Gentoo portage builds from sources
anyway). But building from a completely different version would become
somewhat more complex as Portage downloads its own sources and also
applies its own patchset to the sources.

The risk of messing something up would thus be greater for me. That's my
main concern here.
