Probably not as I expect you need to change all the scripts to find that
"patch" binary. You could DTRT in the first place then.

If anything, you want to use LOCALBASE (or X11BASE) to get to other
packages - PREFIX is strictly for *this* page (being installed/built right
now). That aside, we do not support changing LOCALBASE/X11BASE.

Probably not - if anything, it's active in the devel/patch pkg, but not in
yours. I'd hardcode "gpatch".
