Hi folks: What is the approved method of applying personalised patches to ports sources?
A current example, which was no problem under Linux, is giving me a bit of a hassle under FreeBSD> I use pdftotext extensively to translate pdf files to ascii text. Sometimes, a publicly posted PDF file has it's security option turned on, making pdftotext refuse to translate the file into text. It's a simple hack on the source code to skip security checking, and under Linux I just patch the sources to not check for same. How can I incorporate my patch into the portupgrade system, so that an upgrade of Xpdf will apply my patch? If I download the bzip file, apply the patch, re-bzip the sources, and then try to force an upgrade, the checksum fails (as expected). How does one do thes properly?
