svn(1) is your friend;
#check out the currently kisted version of your port:
$ svn co --depth empty svn://svn.freebsd.org/ports/head 2015-02-27
$ svn up --set-depth empty 2015-02-27/<port-category>
$ svn up 2015-02-27/<port-category>/<your-port-name>
# make your modifications to your port, then...
$ cd 2015-02-27/<you-port-name>
$ svn diff > 2015-02-27.diff
NOTE: if you add, or delete files in the port,
you will also need to issue the appropriate
command to svn(1) (delete/add) prior to creating the diff.
But the real answers lie within the svn man pages. :)
Also have a look at diff(1), and patch (1),
diff -u -N newfile.orig newfile > patch-pathname-newfile
for even greater depth to these topics. :)
