It's probably a good idea to open a PR and let the port maintainer know,
but we really need to have upstream to fix it. FreeBSD discourages doing
custom "development" in the ports tree, so even if you could whip up a
patch to fix it we would prefer that it get committed upstream and the
port updated to pull the new version rather than have the port committer
include a custom patch with the port.
