Hi Stephen and Julian,

I have converted the diffs into port patches (make makepatch) and
updated the man-page revision dates of ctm.8 and ctm_rmail.8.

The port update has been committed as r488168.

I hope this brings the port to the level required to make the CTM
port usable again.

The patches could be imported to the Github repo (freebsd/ctm) after
testing, but for now the patched port should suffice ...

Best regards, STefan
