It can be one of the sources, but in general it's not so simple.
For example update for sysutils/fusefs-rar2fs (ports/170258) was submitted
as shar file, so I created patch myself. I'm pretty sure, that shar created
files with proper EoL at last line and that patch also had proper EoL
(in fact, I just checked this).
There can be many sources of malformed patches, so I think that the best course
of action would be to add check for this to our patch.
