This patch for xc/lib/Xaw3d/SmeLine.c is not for X.org. As far as I can
tell, it doesn't match up with X.org's lib/libXaw/src/SmeLine.c.
The X.org FTP server only provides Xaw3d via its contrib directory. As far
as I know, the original Xaw3d author/developer doesn't work on it for
several years and, sadly, it seems the more recent maintainer passed away.
The last release was four years ago.
Please just add that patch to /pkgsrc/x11/Xaw3d/patches/.
By the why, what about building pkgsrc/graphics/xfig with:
XAW_TYPE=standard or XAW_TYPE=xpm?
