If the bugfixes don't make it into the stable quarterly you are using you can
always do something like:
mv /usr/pkgsrc/category/brokenpackage /usr/pkgsrc/category/brokenpackage.bak
cp -r /usr/fixed-pkgsrc-tree/category/brokenpackage /usr/pkgsrc/category/brokenpackage
for the various broken packages and use your 'hacked up' tree to build the related
This works most of the time unless there have been changes to the various dependencies
of the broken packages, in which case you'll need to do the same for those, or tweak
the 'fixed' packages to use different versions in the package makefiles.
