Patching? Probably a trivial question, but...

I've gotten a patch for a program in the ports tree from one of the
authors of the program - not the port maintainer - to fix a small
problem, but don't know how to install the updated port.

I cd'ed into the
/usr/ports/%CATEGORY%/%PROGRAM%/work/%PROGRAM-VERSION% directory, then
performed 'patch <patch-name' successfully, AFAICT.

Then I did a make, but got no output.

So - I'm obviously lacking clue here. Anyone have a spare set?
