% make extract
% cd `make -V WRKSRC`
% cp file file.orig
% diff -u file.orig file > patch-file
place patch-file in the port files/ directory it will be applied every
time you do make by the `make patch' target.

The checksum file can be updated by `make makesum' but this is probably
not what you want.

Testing can show the presence of bugs, but not their absence.
