Your defamations can stop right there. I am not refusing to maintain the
port, I am refusing to waste my time by chasing moving targets when people
don't actually need the port for their purposes.
I suggest that you re-read
"126.96.36.199 What Is FreeBSD-CURRENT Not?
3. In any way officially supported. We do our best to help people
genuinely in one of the 3 legitimate FreeBSD-CURRENT groups, but we
simply do not have the time to provide tech support. This is not because we
are mean and nasty people who do not like helping people out (we would not
even be doing FreeBSD if we were). We simply cannot answer hundreds
messages a day and work on FreeBSD! Given the choice between improving
FreeBSD and answering lots of questions on experimental code, the
developers opt for the former."
I claim the same exclusion for my ports support.

The patch would have broken the port on system where it compiles and works
just fine, what do you expect?
Fix the bug, or work around it. See if re-running a re-running autoconf
suffices and submit a patch to do just that on FreeBSD 8 if it does.
I'm certainly not tweaking db41 for an unstable changing moving current
shapeshifting system that might not need the tweak tomorrow.
And now stop wasting everybody's time.
Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.
