You seem to be following the unstable branches here.
GNOME is following the Linux convention that odd numbers are unstable and even 
numbers are stable releases.
We try to avoid having the unstable versions in pkgsrc, so please wait for a 
stable release before committing this.

Please read section 14.2.2 in the pgksrc guide and come back with any questions

That patch can be sent upstream while patch-ab can't.
Also, since the patches are applied alphabetically, configure should end up 
with a newer timestamp.

/usr/pkgsrc/devel/pango/Makefile:PLIST_VARS+=           carbon

I'm not sure which of the answers your question, but one of them does :)

When was CoreText added to Mac OS X? If it's old enough, just make it
default; if it's not old enough, make it optional default on and wait
if a Mac OS X users complains :)
