 The format for patches is at

 I could probably work out some of these fields from what you have
posted earlier.  For Upstream Status, some variant of "unknown" is
usually acceptable if you can't establish it.

 The patch version needs to be modified, "libofx-0.9.1-3.patch" is
wrong because it isn't the third patch in BLFS and doesn't specify
what it fixes.  Perhaps -gcc43-1.patch or -gcc43_fixes-1.patch.

 Posting here is ok (IMHO).
