I suspected there was no easy way.

I'll browse through each patch and do my best. If I'm unsure I'll just send you a note and let you decide.

I saw one patch I knew would not get accepted by Debian folks. The one that sources environment variable files from etc/profile.d. As far as I can tell, using /etc/profile.d in Debian is some kind of sacrilege. :) I don' think that particular patch is necessary anyway, at least not in Slackware. Maybe the patch had some value in the Chakra project.
