When an update to a port is committed, it is likely to contain
(a) lines like "Only in xxxx: yyyy"
or (b) patches that are created against empty files using the "-N"
option for diff.
Cannot "patch" honor these cases? As a port maintainer, I have been
caught quite a few times by committers not adding or removing files from
the "files" directory in a port.
