if you're working in an svn checkout, 

patch -p0 < /path/to/patch-file

if you're patching in place on an installed system (i.e., not building
from scratch), you need to get yourself to that installed report
location, make a copy!! first, then 

patch -p3 < /path/to patch-file

the -p switch tells how many directory levels to strip off the front
of the paths in the patch file. that's not quite right, it's really
the /'s that get stripped, but that gives you an idea. man patch

If you're playing in svn already, just svn up. This patch is included
in revision 16620.
