 it's pretty much that process, replace `arb` with `ghc` obviously, and do
 not use the "-devel" suffix in your naming.

 instead manually updating source, like in the example, just add this file:
 to your patches (i.e. `cp ~/Dowloads/patch-Fix-GetTime.c-on-Darwin-with-
 clock_gettime.diff $(port dir ghc)/files/` after the indexing of the local
 ports repo is done).

 and patch your Portfile with:
 (`cd $(port dir ghc)` and `patch -p0 < ~/Downloads/Portfile.diff`)

 clean and build to verify.

 NB: if your are installing this as a dependency to pandoc, as i am, just
 re-run your command to install that and let it finish installing ghc;
 otherwise, `sudo port unsetrequested ghc` after you install it.
