It's a work around. Using something similar like the icc port does,
makes it more easy for the maintainer to update the port. In the icc
port you just have to set the PORTVERSION in a specific way and the
PATCHLEVEL will be set to the right string automatically.

The port needs an update to the actual patch level. This includes to
write a "lseek64" function which calls the appropriate native FreeBSD
function. You are trying to update it ATM, but as you said, you are
lacking the appropriate skills to do it.

So if you depend on a bugfix for ifc, you have to find someone with
access to the ifc distfiles, enough knowledge to fix the problem and
enough time to do it.
