Which patch?  The fix mentioned on the apache site?  You could prepare
a patch that would work for macports (see the guide), test it, and
upload it to the ticket as a possible solution.

There is the patch idea I wrote above, and as well, I think at least
two people now have suggested that it is a problem with the new
erlang, so I guess you could try installing an older version of erlang
and see if it fixes the problem, which would confirm it.  See

I'm just guessing at things you could try.  By the way, it is probably
more effective to keep posting on the same thread (ie. yours from 2
days ago with subject "Macport 1.9 and couchdb crash (ticket 25375)")
rather than starting a new one.
