Building octave

I encountered some problems when building SuiteSparse and have applied the
patch using:

sudo patch -p1 < patch-SuiteSparse-Portfile

and this appears to apply the patch:

patching file
patching file files/patch-complex-type
patching file files/patch-config
patching file files/patch-disable-demos
patching file files/patch-macports-metis
patching file files/patch-powerpc-nanotime
patching file files/patch-size_t-fix

However, when I come to build octave, I do:

sudo port -v install octave

and get:

Portfile changed since last build; discarding previous state.
--->  Fetching SuiteSparse
--->  patch-complex-type doesn't seem to exist in

Various attempts are made to find the file patch-complex-type to no avail.

Can someone tell me what I need to do to build SuiteSparse?
