It is also a little-known fact that you can keep the patches in the
pkgsrc tree if you name them patch-local-*, e.g.
pkgsrc/devel/gmake/patches/patch-local-1. These patches are applied
during the patch phase automatically.
Ehrr, indeed, I didn't know it. What's the difference with LOCALPATCHES,
I think LOCALPATCHES is to satisfy some folks' need to have a read-only
pkgsrc tree, in which case one could allow LOCALPATCHES to point to a
separate, writable location where local patches could be stored. I
personally find LOCALPATCHES kind of klunky because you need to maintain
a separate hierarchy of package directories, and I also much prefer to
keep all of the patches for a package in a single location.
