If a package X does not compile, how will the dfly specific patches
be handled?

Are we going to manually pull down the patches from a specific
location? or have some hack to check is there a patch for that
package, fetch it and patch it? Will that not be very similar to
what we have/had with dfports?

ps: I never used pkgsrc before or know much about it.
