That's exactly what is done:

tron@lyssa:/usr/pkgsrc/graphics/tiff/patches>grep Makefile *
patch-aa:--- man/       Tue Sep  2 19:54:41 1997
patch-aa:+++ man/    Fri Nov 28 02:19:36 1997
patch-aa: apps/Makefile:
patch-ac:--- libtiff/   Tue Sep  2 19:54:19 1997
patch-ac:+++ libtiff/        Mon Dec  1 00:20:35 1997
