Pretty much.
There's no reliable way to know who the maintainer of a package is in
Arch, and you're really not supposed to email them with this sort of
thing anyway.  As Luke said, just open a bug.  An appropriate title
would be "lockups in Portaudio after upgrading to alsa-lib 1.1.2".  Then
include links to the discussion on the Portaudio list [1], along with the
patch [2].
The bug is fixed in the current release candidate.  Hopefully that will
become an actual release soon.  I'm sure that as soon as there's a
release, someone will flag it out of date and the new version
will make it to Arch in short order.
