The best way is to get the patch added into the port, if the maintainer is willing. :-) > Eg, say for the sake of example my patch is in /usr/local/src/foopatch/ > > How would I get the ports system to apply it each time I compiled apache? Just put it in the files subdirectory under the port directory, just before you build the port. Look at other patches to see from which directory they are applied, and make yours match. Unfortunately most port update tools will delete files that are not in the master tree.
