Generating port changes easily

I have made some modifications to a port - couple of lines in the
Makefile, and an updated pkg-plist.
Once upon a time I was shown a script (run_this_script?) to help with
updating a port.
1. Copy the original files in the port to XXX.orig (or something)
For example cp Makefile Makefile.orig
2. Make your changes
For example: vi Makefile ....
3. Now run this script which will generate a DIFF file which can be posted:
run_this_script ... >/tmp/changes.shar ?
run_this_script ... >/tmp/diffs ?
4. Post the generated file to bugzilla with an update request.
Ummm... is there such a 'run_this_script' or am I indulging in wishful
