The problem is that your ports tree has been updated incorrectly or is
broken somehow.  The patch which is failing for you was removed from the
files/ directory 4 months ago, when the 6.0.3 update got applied:

The patch in question does not apply to 6.0.3, and that's what the
problem here is.

I don't know how you have 6.0.3 of the port, but still have old patch
files in files/.  I do not know how/why your ports tree is in this
state.  It's possible that when you installed FreeBSD you chose "src"
and "ports" from the installation menu.  The problem with this is that
you have to "adopt" the src and ports trees to work with csup/cvsup:

I would highly recommend you "start over" from scratch by nuking
your ports tree (rm -fr /usr/ports/*), and the files/dirs in /usr/sup/*
and/or /var/db/sup/*, then updating your entire ports tree again.

You should probably do the same thing with /usr/src as well.
