I think I came across that patch before.  The problem is I can not find that
version (1.10) of netcat anywhere.  Found some places that mention being
pointers to it, but dead links...  It appears there a new GNU version that
has lower version number, and also a BSD version, but it is way different
too (or at least different enough that the patch doesn't apply).

Technically they are not the exact same if you include the interface.  If it
doesn't consider the interface then they would appear the same.
