$ make help topic=LOCALPATCHES
===> mk/patch/ (keywords: PATCHFILES LOCALPATCHES PATCHDIR):
# User-settable variables:
#    LOCALPATCHES is the location of local patches that are maintained
#       in a directory tree reflecting the same hierarchy as the pkgsrc
#       tree, e.g., local patches for www/apache would be found in
#       ${LOCALPATCHES}/www/apache.  These patches are applied after
#       the patches in ${PATCHDIR}.

How should I know if it works?  That's what beta testers are for.  I
only coded it.
