It's not uncommon for a committer to close one PR without
being aware of related PRs.

The patch you submitted in 203014 was already rejected by the maintainer
so forwarding the PR without responding to the objection is unlikely to help:

It's not obvious to me if Brendan objects to the whole tor_prestart(),
or just the first part (which I don't like either), but you could
request a clarification and update the patch accordingly.

If a ports PR with a patch gets ignored for more than 14 days you can
request a maintainer timeout on freebsd-ports@, but once the maintainer
responds by rejecting a patch it's too late (for the rejected patch).
