Hi Ron,

Are you running this on a nettle build tree that the autobuilder already
downloaded (ie used ./build -d where it retains the tree afterwards)?  It's
very important that you delete the tree - autobuilder/nettle - beforehand,
because otherwise patching will fail (the tree has already been patched).

Probably the autobuilder should handle this better, but I'm not sure how. 
Perhaps detect that the tree is there and move it out of the way.  Or be
able to build a pre-patched tree - but IME this often goes wrong in other
