I see the problem. I wish upstream would release a fix but I do not
oppose a REINPLACE option as you mention below.
When you file the PR please explicitly mention why you are patching
the source (and the committer should likely include that information
in the commit log).
We need to work towards reducing the number of patches in ports tree.
