ucspi patching issues rh9

Hello all I have been trying to create a mail server with qmail. I am running rh9 I am stuck on patching the ucspi-tcp.spec.
I have built the errno and rh9.diff patches that I couldnt download and have downloaded:

I ran the rpm (rpm -ivh ucspi-tcp-0.88-1.src.rpm) for ucspi but when I try to patch the
I keep getting errors. I have tried moving the patch to several dirctories around the file. The documentation I am looking at is at

According to this I should have the patch in /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES and running
patch < ucspi-tcp.spec.diff from the /usr/src/redhat/SPECS dir. I keep getting an error that this is not a file or directory. I have attempted this as a bianary install previously with just as much success. My frustration is mounting. I keep finding other ways of duing this but none of them have been successful. Am I missing something. Has any one run across this problem.
I have tried building the ucspi-tcp.spec.rh9.diff file from the info listed and using the command but I keep getting an error;

[root@edblnxsrv SPECS]# patch < ucspi-tcp.spec.rh9.diff
patching file ucspi-tcp.spec
patch: **** malformed patch at line 4: Source:

I have tried to comment them out and to change them to local targets.
I get the same error. If I remove them I get an error on line 6;

patching file ucspi-tcp.spec
patch: **** malformed patch at line 6: BuildRoot: /tmp/ucspi-tcp

I am about to try just adding the new info to ucspi-tcp.spec but I really dont think that is what I am suppose to do. Does any one know what could be causing this. I understand that @@-7,6 +7,8@@ is refering to place on line 7 but thats about all I know. I am about to go nuts.

Here is the patch I am trying to run;
