I have not been following this too closely, but your comment caught my
eye.  Have you experimented with rpmbuild?

For this situation I think you would just get the old 3.0.23b source
rpm from lars.

rpmbuild -bp      # this will extract the 23b source and apply any
suse specific patches.
apply the 3.0.23c patch to the source
rpmbuild -bc       # this will compile the patched code with the suse options
rpmbuild -bi        # This should install the compiled code

I did not test the above process, but I've used rpmbuild -bb before to
back compile suse factory code to a released distro.  I did not have
any issues.
