If Asterisk can only work with a specific version of spandsp then maybe
there needs to be an asterisk specific port of comms/spandsp so other
spandsp consumer ports, such as openpbx, can use the latest version via
comms/spandsp.  Also, the patches in the current version of the spandsp
just appear to be build fixes.

Take it up with the asterisk maintainer.
