Okay, after mulling over various comments, I came with the
patch that's in:
It is at:
This is a patch to the port itself. Ie, you can:
patch -p0 < /tmp/port-ezm3.diff
and do something like 'make patch'. This does not depend on
__FreeBSD_version, and it should automatically detect whether
ezm3 should be built for 32-bit or 64-bit time_t. This is done
by adding an "extra patch" to the port, so it is determined at
patch time, instead of at the (more desirable) build-time. It
also prints out an informational message (in a pre-patch target)
indicating which time_t ezm3 is being built for.
These changes will only effect builds done on sparc64.
I do not know who the proper person would be to do the actual
commit of this, but I'm pretty sure it is not me! I can say
that I have checked it, and it does work the way I wanted it to.
Due to the way it works, it could be committed right now.
