Remove the dependency on devel/patch
Long ago we were allowing OpenOffice to build its own versions of various software packages -- instead of making it use what FreeBSD's ports provided -- and it needed patch(1) to do the building.
We no longer do that in the libreoffice port -- and, hopefully -- not in OpenOffice either.
But we still have the gpatch dependency -- and the upstream still have a configure-script verify, that the patch(1) is GNU-compatible (only on SunOS, FreeBSD, and Darwin, though).
It is not needed however -- which is especially important now, when gpatch is found to have (yet unfixed) security holes (https://vuxml.FreeBSD.org/freebsd/791841a3-d484-4878-8909-92ef9ce424f4.html).
