Seems I wasn't clear enough. I created a port using *your* diff from
RT. But added two extra patches. The first one to enable the port to
be compiled at amd64 and the second one to enable to compile the port
Actually, I tried but didn't find a way to submit a followup to your
ticket at RT database.
