I associate this message with an earlier line identifying the file being
sought.  Usually this means I am not in a directory at the same relative
path [to the source root] from which the patch was made. Back up one
directory above your source root and try a few values of '-pN': -p1 .. -p3
 stopping as you have if the sources are not found -- very likely you will
hit the right offset and one or all of the patches will be applied
successfully. You have to look at any sections which fail to determine
why, and whether they are important. (You will get a report of this and 
they will have been saved with a 'rej' suffix.)
