For future reference, you'd use the "patch" command, it reads the patch
file from stdin, so eg. save as patchfile, cd to an "appropriate"
directory and
$ patch -p1 < patchfile

That "-p1" indicates to strip one directory level from the directories
given in the patch (kernel patches are typically given as
--- a/somepath
+++ b/somepath
Where a and b are dummy directories for the old and new trees
respectively. man patch is quite comprehensive.

You don't need it in this case though; just checkout the current
vorbis-tools by doing:

$ svn co http://svn.xiph.org/trunk/vorbis-tools
This includes the above patch.

Then do the

thing as described in the README.  Hope this solves your problem.
