Hi Mit,

The standard way to submit a port patch is by filing a PR (problem
report) to the FreeBSD GNATS database.  You can read more here and
submit right from this page: http://www.freebsd.org/send-pr.html

You can also submit directly from the command-line with the send-pr

If you are submitting a PR for a port, have a look at the
ports-mgmt/porttools port, since it automates a lot of the PR filing
tasks for you: http://www.freshports.org/ports-mgmt/porttools

In particular, the "port submit" command will create a patch for you and
help you submit a PR with it.

Best regards,
