I suggest using single distfile for both ones. I see that using this 
PATCHLEVEL method seems easier to handle when updating, but the other 
way isn't more diffcult either, you can just modify PORTVERSION and run 
make makesum. The point is that those patches are small but they can 
seriously prolong the fetching phase of the build due the enormous 
number of FTP transactions.
