That looks somewhat like the one I wrote up about a week ago
trying to get svn to compile.

Well, I guess APR is in Apache 2? .. that's the only place I
could find anything related to it in the ports tree.

Well, I would prefer to fix this here and now in the subversion
tree, not because it's the harder way to do the fix ;) but
because it's the Right Way(tm) to fix it. I.e. I'd prefer to fix
gnu-[diff,patch].sh so they actually test the diff/patch binaries
on a system.. 'cause who knows what other systems might have a
useful diff/patch for subversion and may not be able to use GNU's
version for some reason? I.e. administrator concern, outdated
OS, blah blah. :)

However, if it is truly required then for the time being I'd
settle for simply putting the diffutils port in the tree. You
know, sometimes different versions of utilities match others
features at various points in time.. ;)
