Issues with patching ports

I know, I probably should be asking the maintainers about this but I
wanted to get a feel for whether or not other people were experiencing
the same issues as I am.
Currently I'm on dialup (:(...), so there's a large degree of lag
between when I can get distfiles from school and later discover issues
and fix them.
In an effort to get my desktop up and running with strictly FreeBSD
again (tossing XP x64), I've found issues with the following ports though:
- audacious [1.3.5,1] (patch fails; files to patch no longer exist)
- firefox [188.8.131.52] (patches fail)
- samba3 [3.0.26d] (patches fail)
- xorg-libraries [latest, 7.3] (work directory doesn't exist)
- [a variety of other patch related issues]
I'm using the ports snapshot available from
ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/ports/ports.tar.gz because I
can't reliably csup / cvsup sources or ports on my Mac OS X machine :(...
Does anyone have similar experience, or is it all me?
