I thought GNU patch worked for every package in the tree. Is this not
the case? What hacks are needed? If GNU patch is bad, then importing
another patch into pkgsrc would be good. I don't think it would need to
be added to bootstrap though, because USE_TOOLS+=patch will cause patch
to be installed during the "depends" stage. We would just need to
adjust the tools framework to default to this other patch package,
rather than to GNU patch.
