I also use dwm.
For creating a patch I have installed pkgtools/pkgdiff, then:

`make patch`
to extract the tarball (and apply patches, if any exist)

`EDITOR=vim pkgvi work/dwm-6.1/config.def.h`
edit it as desired,

`mkpatches && make distinfo`
to create a proper pkgsrc patch and the relevant distinfo,

`make install`

This should create a patch file in your patches subdirectory that you
can later reuse.

This is mine:

(for future reference, tech-misc is the wrong place for this question.
You will want to ask netbsd-users@ or pkgsrc-users@, which also have
more readers).
Oh that makes sense to generate patches, thank you, I'm excited to try that

and thanks for the list tips
