I still try to fix 'em right and make the patches available.

I know what you mean, though.  Python, for instance,
is incredibly difficult to cross-compile, partly because
they ditched autoconf and replaced it with a setup script
written in Python that had to be executed by the same Python
you're trying to build.   That knot took me a month to unsnarl.
Fortunately, Guido works near me, I think I can shame him
into fixing that...
