The earlier sword-1.7.3 packages you built were taken from sword trunk,
which means they reflect both the changes in 1.7.3 and additional changes
that I detailed in my other thread this morning. The eventual release of
1.7.3 will be done off of the svn branch named "sword-1-7-x", which I just
updated last night. Your patch should apply pretty cleanly to that, as it
