I'm not sure, I understand which changes to the bazel port (or otherwise to
FreeBSD) you want to happen.

You mentioned that you learned that you need to compile bazel from
source---well, this is precisely what this port does. I'm not surprised that
you get compilation errors when trying to do so without patching the sources;
after all, the patches in the files subdirectory of the port are there for a
reason. If you have any concrete suggestions how to improve on them, please let
me know.

You mentioned that FreeBSD is (as a matter of fact: no longer) supported by the
bazel community. Well, I guess, we have to respect their choice of which
operating systems to test on and which failures to consider release critical.
Of course, this port is also unofficial in the sense that it is managed by the
FreeBSD project and not the bazel project (even though the author used to be a
bazel developer at the time its creation), but that's the nature of ports
anyway. Of course, if you find an active bazel developer who wants to take over
maintainership of this port, I'm more than happy to pass it on.
