It hasn't been. You have to use an OLC from a third party like Obuild from
Sammy or OasisOLC from George Greer.

Read a little further and you will find that a patch does come with the
tarball. You'll want to patch your current code with the provided
patchfile. If you are feeling especially lazy, lucky or daring, then you
can use 'patch' (man patch) to "automatically" add the patch to your code.

I would suggest that you patch the code in by hand. If you're not sure how
to do this, then search the archives of the mailing list. I'm sure that
there are more than a few posts on how to do this.
