I believe bsd-port does not break building on any platform, so that
might be a way to go. I don't think it would limit anyone from building
"nearly master" hotspot + mlvm patches.
Maybe someone with a few free moments could try pulling from bsd-port
and building on linux? If that works, I vote yes for rebasing to
bsd-port, since everyone would be able to play the MLVM game then.
