Easy for you to say...
If you really expect someone to fix that, what you ought to do is
supply patches (and file a pr!). Since hcc/hcc.cc is already patched,
there should be an hcc/hcc.cc.orig file in your build directory
already. So "diff -u hcc/hcc.cc.orig hcc/hcc.c >../patches/patch-ag"
gives the new patch-ag. "xfile.hc" gets patched to patch-ah, and so
on. If you need to recover the original files in order to patch them,
you can recover just one file from a tar-file by supplying it as the
last argument. E.g. "tar -C /tmp -xzvf /usr/pkgsrc/distfiles/craft-*
Once you have the patches you can attach or cat them to the pr (see
man page for send-pr), or even supply patches to the existing patches.
Happy hacking! :-)
