Googled patch utility - not sure of which one to get as none I found use the
.patch extensions? 

So is this the workflow...
- Get patch
- Get patch utility - Not sure which one - Any recommendations for Win7,
Mac, Linux? 
- Apply patch to installer for PostgreSQL or after PostgreSQL is installed? 
- Recompile?
- Reinstall? 
- Re-import existing database structure?  --- If I apply this patch - I've
already got a schema built for my database does that mean I'll lose it or
have to import it in?

Never done this have lots of questions... 

Thanks again. 

Warmest regards, 

Casey Havenor
