    I suggest creating your own "repo fork" of the pfsense-packages repo on Github.  Then make your changes to the package in question and submit them as a Pull Request back to pfsense-packages.  Instructions for creating a fork and have it track the upstream master are on the Github site (Google can also be a good friend when learning how to use Git).

    If you go to the pfsense-packages site and click Pull Requests in the upper right, you will see the currently open requests.  Here is a link:  https://github.com/pfsense/pfsense-packages/pulls.
