I don't know about "somehow", maybe Austin knows a way.

The current default should not be changed though, in my opinion. We expect
contributors to make their patches against HEAD, and we want to review them
against HEAD. So Harbormaster should also try to build them against HEAD.

If you are working from an old base commit, either rebase your patch before
submitting to Phabricator (painful? you will have to do it before pushing
anyway, might as well do it now), or ignore the Harbormaster validate
