I'm quite impressed with pkgsrc's functionality on Darwin/Mac OS X. 
However, I missed proper shared library handling. I have made one 
package (dlcompat from the Fink project) and patches to apply to the 
pkgsrc/mk/ file, as well as the devel/libtool and 
devel/libtool-base packages.

What is the best/recommended way to get these modifications inlcuded in 
the main pkgsrc distribution?

I can submit a "send-pr" via the web if that is the preferred method.

You can find all the changes here:

I hope this support of dynamic libraries proves useful to the Darwin/Mac 
OS X pkgsrc/Zoularis community.
