Fix for compilation issue

standard patch file...
just fixes compilation issue... there may be other problems
with metacity on PPC that need to be worked out.

I looked at the metacity ebuild, but I have no idea about how to add a patch to
it ;)  How is this done?  If you can do this or tell me how I would like to
apply this ASAP as it's 100% b0rked on ppc w/ gcc 3.2 ATM :(

Comment 3 Spider (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-08-15 04:26:43 UTC
just do it as normal in 

src_unpack ()  {
unpack ${A}
if [ARCH] ; then
  patch -p0 < PATCH || die "A horried ppc death"
