Yes, but my life's much simpler if I can just say a version, rather than 
"with git revision crazyhexstringthatmeansnothing"

Roughly. Once I get Ruby I expect that to increase a fair bit, to over half.

I was pushing on the wiki for exactly this reason ;)

It's part of Snowflake. If you just want the pkgsrc patches, you can 
either use snowflake/pkgsrc-patches (broken down by package) or 
snowflake/core/patches/pkgsrc-musl.diff (all in one). Use pkgsrc 2012Q1 
for easiest patching, I haven't updated to Q2 yet. I intend to right 
about now, since this build is over.

(To listeners-in, Snowflake is )
