I doubt I understand the question, because my answer is:
% cd /tmp
% mkdir bind
% cd bind
% fetch ftp://ftp.isc.org/isc/bind9/9.9.3b1/bind-9.9.3b1.tar.gz
% pax -rzf bind-9.9.3b1.tar.gz
% cd bind-9.9.3b1
% # now standing in the BIND9 source pool for BIND 9.9.3b1 referred to
% # by http://www.redbarn.org/dns/ratelimits
% fetch http://.../rpz+rl-9.9.3b1.patch
% patch -s -p0 -irpz+rl-9.9.3b1.patch
% ./configure ...
- wget, curl, ftp, lynx, and other commands can be used to
instead of `fetch` to fetch the BIND tarball and patch file
- you could use a 9.8.4-P1, 9.9.2-P1, or 9.8.5b1 tarball instead of
- alternatives to `pax -z` include
gzcat bind-9.9.2-P1.tar.gz | tar -rf -
- look for a hyperlink to the web page with links to the matching
patch file on the relatively stable http://www.redbarn.org/dns/ratelimits
The ultimate URLs are obviously not secret, but it's best to not
publish them in a mailing list like this where search engines
will find them and then try to fetch them years after the patches
are obsolete and deleted. Major search engines, especially one
related to Redmond, WA, are still trying to fetch files I named
then deleted from a "temp" directory more than 10 years ago.
- In theory, one could modify any of the patch files to apply to
any fairly recent version of BIND redistributed by a third
party such as FreeBSD.org or one of the Linux repackagers.
In practice, that is at best unlikely to be fun.
