You should probably use some VCS and just merge new versions into.
Or at least keep those changes you made as patch?

I am not aware of any.

As for 'abi-compatible-flag' - now you just need to adjust CFLAGS.  I
don't remember any patch which needs to be modified/removed.

And when we add suhosin patch ...  I suggest you try to fool quilt into
thinking it has already applied suhosin patch (before patch target) and
vice versa.
