  • Fix graphics/p[5y]-ming by not poking USE_GITHUB variables instead of redefining AUTORECONF_WRKSRC

Oops, use PATCH_WRKSRC in post-patch to avoid confusion.

tijl edited edge metadata.

For me the patch is fine, but I would just use ${WRKSRC}/perl_ext (or py_ext) in post-patch. Since autoreconf runs in WRKSRC it's possible that in the future some files may need to be patched there and then a non-default PATCH_WRKSRC can be a bit confusing or unexpected.

graphics/py-ming already relies on non-default PATCH_WRKSRC as it modifies WRKSRC. I've tried to keep p5-ming consistent with it. However, rebasing the patches would complicate this differential even more.

Let's go back to AUTORECONF_WRKSRC then. Improving p[5y]-ming ports is out of scope here.
