The question that ought to be answered is why pkgsrc is running
patch in a mode that leaves .orig files around that then need removing.

That's just absurd - when it uses the SUBST mechanism, it doesn't make
backup files (and nor should it).

Just fix things so that the .orig files never get created (patch in posix
mode - that is, the standard for patch says no backup files unless
explicitly requested) and you'll never have to worry about removing them,
nor being concerned that perhaps there's a data file called x.orig
that has nothing to do with patch...
