We add patches to make ports...

... conform to FreeBSD hier (to an extent)

We shouldn't add patches which "continue development". In all cases
the goal should be to upstream the patch ASAP. If there is no active
upstream and the patch does more than the above that is a sign that
someone needs to be willing to become the upstream maintainer first.
