The patch has also been merged by Audacity meanwhile during a sync with
portaudio upstream, so the most recent Fedora packages do not apply the
separate patch anymore either. During the F9/F10 timeframe, Audacity
without the patch worked for enough users.

With regard to discussing whether the system portaudio library could be
used for Audacity, I recommend people first become familiar with the level
of patching done by Audacity's developers to their local copy of portaudio.
In particular, the feature called PortMixer is part of Audacity for a
long time and has not been merged by PortAudio upstream. A feature would
get lost by forcing Audacity to use the system library. A patch to do that
has been rejected on audacity-devel list just recently.
