I also get perfect results on 3.0.0 with both MacOS X 10.4.11 on PPC  
and MacOS X 10.5.2 on Intel, using fileflags.diff, crtimes.diff and  
Wayne's new fileflags-fixes.diff.

I find it interesting that you have had no luck with crtimes.diff.   
Could you post your results?  Are you applying the patches in the  
right order (that is, fileflags.diff followed by crtimes.diff, not  
vice versa)?

I suspect the backup-dir-dels.diff patch is not strictly necessary,  
unless you actually want the functionality (as many of us do).

./prepare-source may or may not do anything, depending which source  
version you're using.
