I'd _very_ much prefer the former, for a couple of reasons:
o Not all FreeBSD users use our ports collection, so both the Wine and
FreeBSD projects risk getting bug reports if our sources diverge.
o In fact even I, the maintainer of the FreeBSD port, mostly use pristine
upstream sources to continually check current CVS versions of Wine (and
keep them buildable on FreeBSD).
o I worked very hard to decrease the number of local patches and keep
the divergence minimal, and I have learned Alexandre as very interested
in keep Wine portable.
Unfortunately, a general patch for this is beyond my (current)
capabilities, so I'd really appreciate could the two of you agree on
a general fix for this.
(Even some #ifdef __FreeBSD__ in the Wine sources certainly would be
better than having FreeBSD local patches, IMHO.)
PS: Thanks also for the very nice analysis, Jörg!
