Both of these patch files were present in 7.0-R but removed after the 
release.  In both cases they apply cleanly to the release ports tree 
(you can verify this because the packages built for both of these ports, 
as found on the ftp site).

Are you sure you did not attempt to update your ports tree post-install? 
  This kind of error usually happens following an incorrect update 
attempt after installing a ports tree from sysinstall.
