Portmanger acquired this feature just before Schultz went off in a

What it does is is patch bsd.port.mk so that it calls back
into portmanager allowing it to modify dependencies. I haven't 
checked the code, but since I've not seen any evidence of
portmanager trying to modify dependencies in the last few years, I
suspect that the support for the callback is just a stub. If that's
true then using an unpatched file is harmless.
