Whoever wrote that brewfile probably copied the build configuration
from MacPorts, or copied just the patch when it became an issue. They
just didn't bother to rehost it.

It's a bit ironic, but aside from that, the potential for breakage
when the patch changes, and the lapse in etiquette of not rehosting is
there any problem here? Is the patch released under some license that
would restrict reuse like this?

I feel like Homebrew has backed down a bit from their initial
hostility towards this project.
