Dead easy. You can even hand-patch your 2.0.2 installation if you wish to do
so. Still, patching your source tree and then running 'make install' does
all that is required, and even if something other than a few modules were
changed (like the format of the config.db), 'make install' would handle it.
Just patch, 'make', 'make install' and all should be fine. Making a backup
first is always a good idea, of course, but shouldn't be necessary <cross
