Actually, I believe the author of the patch was trying to resolve the
problem I had just posted about with the $uptime and -x in the and running config-test

Use this instead. (Assumes all the $uptime stuff is uncommented)

< $uptime_command = "/usr/bin/uptime";  Get system uptime here
< if ( -x $uptime_command) {
< $uptime = `$uptime_command`;
< }
> $uptime = `/usr/bin/uptime` if -x /usr/bin/uptime;     # Get system uptime
> $uptime = `/usr/bsd/uptime` if -x /usr/bsd/uptime;     # or uptime is over here.

It also works for me and solves any remaining problems I've had with
