Package and submit, it doesn't matter whether you file it as PR, send it
to pkgsrc-users, or to some active developer directly.

I took a short look at it and see that there're few problems to be fixed
1. XSB tries to install files even before it has passed configuration stage.
2. It reports that it fails to find iTCL, yet tries to install the file.

It sounds like it is a messy software. It will take some time.

(By the way, why don't you use Yap or SWI Prolog instead? Do you use any
highly XSB-specific tools?)
