qmail question (or creating a "dummy" package)

I want to compile qmail with patches that are not in the ports (I want to
test some of the patches in http://netdevice.com/qmail/rcptck/). since I'm
a FreeBSD newbie I won't even start thinking about creating a port for it,
so my other option (beside installing the port and then installing from
source over it) is to search for a 'dummy' mechanism that will cause ports
that depend on qmail to install even if it's not installed from the ports.
is there a way to do it?
