Sorry, I knew I should have used a word other than "patch".  What I
meant is that these pkgsrc specific changes should be maintained as
local changes in the pkgsrc repository.  Ie. as I understand it the
plan is to import bmake into devel/bmake/files/

Any changes that pkgsrc come up with which are generally applicable
are best fed back and applied to make or bmake as appropriate - that's
the exercise we are doing now.  But there will always be changes
needed that are specific to a project like pkgsrc and there's no
problem with that.
