I was not refering to patching Perl code, rather that supplying new port
and a little modification to net/p5-Net-Twitter/Makefile in a patch
I filled a PR ports/137305.

No. The port builds properly, it's just missing some functionality
because of missing dependency. This is something automatic checks
couldn't catch, and this is what a port maintainer should notice. But,
things like this do happen.

Yes, that's why when you have noticed and verified that the problem
exists you should fill in a PR. Even though you can't supply a patch to
fix it you would let the maintainer know.
