As for the strange part, it seems like historical left-over from times when
ports had "patches" directory (I vaguelly recall the OpenBSD still does it
these days). Since FreeBSD had standardized on "files" long time ago, bpm
should stop using PATCHDIR and replace it with FILESDIR). Ditto for the
ports, of course.
