For any essential packages it should be a mix of the package maintainers and the
port maintainers.  I'm usually fine to apply local patches conditionally for
some port, when these are not yet upstream, but it really should be the
responsibility of the port maintainers to keep the basic port working and submit
these patches upstream.
