I haven't used it for a while, but maybe wip/send-pr (in pkgsrc "work in
progress") still works. Also there is pkgsrc/sysutils/gtk-send-pr.

And links to a web-based form
(link is at bottom of page).

Also, please consider using tech-pkg mailing list for discussion (or
reporting bugs).

I'll let someone else answer about this.

But I find it strange that nobody else noticed this since this line has
been there since Oct. 6, 2004 (revision 1.1).

Does the ulimit give some error? Or does this mean it just does nothing?
Or does this mean the wrong shell is being used?
