Ok sorry, let me start over.

FreeBSD has something called the ports collection, which is a bunch of
applications that have been ported to FreeBSD. These include patches for
each application to allow for FreeBSD specific stuff. In the case of
curl, they have a port for 7.11.0 which includes six patch files for
FreeBSD specific issues.

I'm just wondering if a daily build for FreeBSD should include those
somehow, or even if it's worth having a daily build since they seem to
be pretty much up to date anyway.

Perhaps the porter monitors this list and would care to comment.
