I'm not quite sure what you mean by "after installing a package".
It is explicitly mentioned in the instructions for each package when a
patch should be applied. You will see a line like:
patch -Np1 -i ../patch-name
Patches are (almost always) applied *before* you do the configure, make,
make install stages. I would say that the make install stage in when you
install the package so I think your terminology might have been a bit off.
Take your time and read carefully each instruction and try to understand
what it is doing.
Some packages do not have the patch applied every time you build the
package, even though you may do this twice during the book...
Have fun and DON'T rush it!
