1. copy the file to the postgis/loader directory
2. unzip it:
gunzip shp2pgsql-drop.patch.gz
3. apply the patch:
patch -p0 < shp2pgql-drop.patch

You should get a message that shp2pgql.c was patched.
For those not familiar with patch/diff, it might be easier to edit the file
manually (which is no problem, as only one line needs to be changed:
printf("select DropGeometryColumn('%s','%s','the_geom');",database,table);
printf("delete from geometry_columns where f_table_name = '%s';\n",table);
