Any patches named files/patch-* in the port's directory will be applied as the port is built. So you should be able to add your patch and do a 'make clean build' to create patched binaries. You can also 'make patch' to just apply the patches, then inspect the results under the work directory.

You should always use the f option to specify the archive - for example tar -tzf archive.tgz to list or tar -xzf archive.tgz to extract. In your example below, you didn't specify an archive so it defaulted to the device /dev/sa0, which it couldn't open. Any extra arguments are treated
