Yes. Of course, I could put the patches in the MacPorts repository,
but I don't think this is recommended, as not every MacPorts user
need them (if every ports did that, it would multiply the repository
and working copy size by some factor).

Upstream patches are versioned: they are in different subdirectories.
But MacPorts doesn't care, unless I've missed something to have the
subdirectory taken into account.

How can I do that? "patchfiles" contains only the patch names, I didn't
see any possibility of rename.
