Rhetorical question, but I'll bite.  They don't work because you already
patches something else in, and by doing so you altered the code and the line
numbers that the patch searches for.  Simple as that.  You get .rej files
when you patch, just open those up and put in the stuff that didn't go
through in the patch.  Simple as pie.  Or handpatch, which is what I always
do, even with the CircleMUD bpl patches.  You might actually learn something
that way too, and that's not bad.

How can you have non-existant mobs that call non-existant specprocs?  Think
long and hard about that.  I'll give you a day or so to think about it.

If you on the other hand have -existing- mobs that call non-existant
specprocs, then I suppose you can either remove the specproc assignment from
that mob, or maybe you're running the mud in mini mode (-m)?
