Patches are source-code changes. They make it easy to upgrade if you still
have the previous version's source around (and are usually much smaller).
You'll still have to do some changing.

To use a patch, download it and do something like this:

gunzip patch.gz
cd htdig-3.1.4
patch -p 1 <../patch.gz

At this point, the source code is the same as that of 3.1.5. Tehn you'll
have to recompile (and install):

make install

The make install usually replaces binaries, but not modified files (like
config files).
