I think it would be more convenient to have a source repo for
netcat-openbsd rather than the current setup with a set of
debian/*.patch files.

Perhaps could host a netcat-openbsd project containing
the GNU/Linux port (with all the patches applied), from which both the
Debian package and the Guix package would be built?

If that’s not an option then yes, you can do as you proposed, ng0.
