file a bug report to add a feature to do this ... something like "buildsrcpkg".  
it'd automatically bundle up all the eclasses the pkg is using as well as all 
of $CATEGORY/$PN/.

if you capture all of the $PORTDIR/$CATEGORY/$PN/ and $A, then there should be 
no need to manually hook into epatch to capture the patches.  there's really 
no other place these could come from.
