Faced the same issue and would really like to see it coming.

It's been a year! Come on!
The patch is wrong at first glance it should just activate xft via --with-xft rather than patching
I have modified the port to support XFT by default along with other modification/cleanup
A commit references this bug:

New revision: 431428
Add support for xft (on by default) 
Move the authdir to were is belong: /var/db/xdm and set it via the configure script
instead of a ugly symlink
