Default Patch and compile bind94 on FreeBSD ports collection

Dear ALL,

I just wonder whether we could patch and compile the bind dns from ports collection..!

My requirement is to apply the GeoDNS bind patch to the bind94 package on port collection and run the configure script then install

patch -p0 < file.dff
./configure -- enable options
make install

I have seen the directory called "work" and it has all the source codes -- /usr/ports/dns/bind94/work. Is that possible to apply patch and run ./configure script then install..? Is this a good method..?

How do we achieve this without download and compile it in manually..?

Please advice

Thanks in advance

All files in the files/ directory starting with patch- are applied automatically, you can place or patch there.

Or you can do it manually:
# cd /usr/ports/dns/bind94
# make patch
# patch -d work -p0 < patchfile.diff
# make install
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
