Whoops!  Wow, looks like that solves all my problems in one shot.

Can I offer a little constructive criticism?  What with all the READMEs and
INSTALLs, all with the same names and different contents, I never did read
the PATCH-xxx files.  So I never saw the chmod -R instruction!  It would be
very helpful for newcomers if there was a single complete entry point for how
to get and install this thing.

Well, maybe I can help.  Gnu tar has a handy little option called --mode that
lets you change the mode as you store files.  Try something like this:

    tar cz --file=patches.tgz --mode=+w

Many thanks!  Looks like I'm in the clear.
