The patch-* files should be in "diff -bu" format, and apply without a fuzz
to avoid problems (to force patches to apply with fuzz you can set
PATCH_FUZZ_FACTOR=-F2). Furthermore, do not put changes for more than one
file into a single patch-file, as this will make future modifications more
So, in summary: pkgsrc doesn't like that. Patches have to apply cleanly.
Apply the patch manually and regenerate it, preferably using pkgdiff from
