 I believe this is too many packages for us to provide patches for for this
 In the long run, it will cost us extra time to keep trying to keep these
 patches in sync for when we update this software.
 If it is really important I'd suggest you contact each of the projects'
 developers of the specific projects to ask them to fix in their own code.
 Roland suggested patching the files somewhere between the post-extract and
 pre-install phases.
 I don't think we should do this for pkgsrc. As it may encourage others to
 file bug reports for other warnings. Instead we should encourage those
 interested to file bug reports to the original developers.
 I am not sure what to do with this PR, but it is my week to assign PRs,
 so I am sharing my comments :)
