Hi Fbsd1,

Since you've already found a unified diff of the change that you want to
incorporate into the port, you can submit a PR (problem report) using
the form here:

Just follow the instructions on that page, and your patch will be
submitted to the PR system. The port maintainer reviews your PR, makes
the necessary change and possibly updates the port's revision number.
You then use portupgrade or some other means to install the new version
of the port with the incorporated patch.

Hope that helps,

I submitted PR like you suggested, But i am in need of more immediate
results. What changes to the port files do i need to make to get the port to
complie in the patch file?

freebsd-questions@xxxxxxxxxxx mailing list
To unsubscribe, send any mail to "

If I remember correctly you just add the patch file to the files/ directory
under the port with a name like patch-<file to be patched>
