Sure, you can do that. It doesn't seem like we do multi-file patches
much in pkgsrc, but they do exist. I suspect because of 'mkpatches' not
generating them.

There's a couple of places where people started distributing a large
patch as a distfile, too.

Good luck!

One exra thing: something is currently mis-behaving regarding ncurses in
pkgsrc, you might want to start your testing with:
rm pkgsrc/*/ncurses/
(if on netbsd)

I'll try to address that...
