Thanks for your quick feedback, Greg.  Below are my responses.

I originally submitted the package through PR & someone else put it into 
pkgsrc-wip for me.  I think I added this info with my last commit.

I added this to DESCR & also put it in the commit message itself.
I also added a MESSAGE file, but I'm not sure that's what you meant by 
COMMIT_MSG.  I couldn't find this variable anywhere (I'm still new to pkgsrc).

No, I have not.  Of course I want his opinion, if he is around.  I don't
really know how to get in touch with him, but hopefully he will see this
at some point.  I would certainly like his blessing.  My feeling is that
it should be a replacement, but he may feel otherwise and I would respect

Sorry that I neglected to say that I had rolled in all the original patches
where applicable.  It does work with clang, without those patches.  Adding them 
didn't seem to have any effect, so I left them out to simplify things.

Hope this answers things.  Let me know if there are other things I might
need to do.
