Compile xv 3.10a on Ubuntu and what to do now that bak.fas.harvard.edu does not exist anymore?

Credits: the information used here is a combination of this page and a comment of Simon Goodwin to this page.

All of these pages and numerous others require patches to be downloaded from a server called bak.fas.harvard.edu, which has gone offline. By chance I discovered these patches in my own archives, and thus I make them available here (see below, or just follow the instructions).

How to install xv:

sudo su -
cd /tmp
wget ftp://ftp.cis.upenn.edu/pub/xv/xv-3.10a.tar.gz
wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/png-mng/xv-3.10a-jumbo-patches-20050501.tar.gz
wget http://www.ulich.org/hints/resources/xv-3.10a-jumbo20050501-1.diff.gz
tar xvzf xv-3.10a.tar.gz
tar xvzf xv-3.10a-jumbo-patches-20050501.tar.gz
gzip -d xv-3.10a-jumbo20050501-1.diff.gz
cd xv-3.10a
patch -p1 < ../xv-3.10a-jumbo-fix-patch-20050410.txt
patch -p1 < ../xv-3.10a-jumbo-enh-patch-20050501.txt
patch -p1 < ../xv-3.10a-jumbo20050501-1.diff
chmod 755 debian/rules 
apt-get install libc6-dev
apt-get install xlibs-dev
apt-get install libjpeg62-dev
apt-get install libtiff4-dev
apt-get install libpng12-dev
apt-get install libxt-dev
cp xv /usr/bin

Local copies of the patches; please download the actual xv 3.10a package from the original source.
