It looks like CDK just had a release yesterday 31 January. Their changes
have caused Textadept's patch to fail applying. I wish the cdk site would
version their downloads so these silent breaks wouldn't happen.

You can remove gen-slider.c and try running `make deps` again. It should
not try patching cdk again. Then you should be able to build Textadept.

I will update the cdk patch in the next nightly or two.
