Thanks for going through the trouble of generating this patch.  It looks 
good to me, however, Mauro has decided to redo the script entirely.  
Please try the new method by updating your source tree.

His new script should automatically load each compiled module along with 
all of its dependencies.

Let us know how it works out for you.
