I've recently installed gentoo and verything went more or less without any issues. Only one problem left. I downloaded the tab and pertag patches for dwm from suckless website. And following the gentoo wiki talking about dwm, I recompiled dwm with savedconfig USE flag, and placed both patches in /etc/portage/patches/x11-wm/dwm-6.0/. The first time portage just skipped patching dwm because patches had .diff and not .patch extensions. After renaming pertag finished successfully but tab patch failed. I then tried to compile dwm from my local overlay, which would patch using the original .diff extension, but the end result remained the same.

x11-wm/dwm-6.0 was built with the following:
USE="savedconfig -xinerama"

The output of "sudo emerge --info '=x11-wm/dwm-6.0::x-portage' is the same except for the obvious repo name change.

The problem was the order in which I tried to apply patches. After I had renamed the patches so they where in the right (alphabetical) order I was able to successfully build dwm.

Have you tried building dwm with the tab patches outside of portage to see if they apply cleanly? Also, one thing to keep in mind is that some of the patches portage is already applying may conflict. I suggest extracting the dwm tarball from /usr/portage/distfiles, applying the patches in the order specified via the ebuild, when it gets to your tab patches, apply them first with dry-run to see if they're clean, and then try and build. The issue could also simply be that you're patching at the wrong prefix level (i.e. p0 vs p1). Anyways, good luck.
