The ports infrastructure has an easy mechanism to add patches to the
source of a port before it is build, which can be made dependend on
OSVERSION. If you can create pachtes against the source of those ports,
I'd be happy to get them incorporated in the ports themselves, and do
buildtime testing.

It would be as simple as a block of:
=2Einclude
=2Eif ${OSVERSION} > 800001
PATCHFILES=3D somefile.patch
PATCHSITES=3D ${MASTER_SITE_LOCAL}
MASTER_SITE_LOCAL=3D julian
=2Eendif

and put the patches on freefall in ~/public_distfiles/
But like I said, I'd be happy to fix this, if you can create the
patches.

Cheers,
-erwin
