Thanks for the advice, Jean :)
The advantage of the symlink technique is that it replaces the
lm_sensors libsensors.so.4 as installed by Slackware so, if the 3.3.1
installation is every replaced by a Slackware package, the available
libsensors.so.4 will automatically be changed.
BTW I forgot to mention that the dos2unix step was unnecessary because
patch strips the DOS-isms.
