$WORKDIR/foo-0.1.1 would be $WRKSRC then. The patch-* files should be diffs
taken against $WRKSRC.
There exists in src a Makefile. It is this file I have modified. The
full path to this modified file is:
The first two lines of my patch-* file (presently, after some messing
around) look like:

Given your comments above, I'm even more confused. Have I generated the
diff in the wrong format (I used `diff -ru `)? Are your comments
related to another file which needs tweaking?
In this case you would:
# cd /usr/ports/sysutils/foo/work/foo-0.1.1/src
# cp Makefile Makefile.orig
# (make your changes to Makefile)
# cd ..
# diff -u src/Makefile.orig src/Makefile > ../../files/patch-src:Makefile
It doesn't really matter what name you give the patchfile, but a descriptive
one (eg indicating the path) will be appreciated.
ok... thanks for the explaination. Got it fixed.
