/usr/ports/devel/patch doesn't seem to conflict with the existence of a 
"make patch" target; I don't believe that the ports system should 
forbid a port named "clean", or "install", if /usr/bin/install was a 
port rather than part of the base system.

Regardless of my opinion, however, I do apologize for any inconvenience 
that may have resulted.  At the time I submitted the port, I asked 
about the name on this list and received no feedback or objections 
since June.

Should the port be renamed?
