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.
