The quick way to add a patch is simply place it in the src/ directory with a 
name like nsis-2-fix-header.patch. There is a more sophisticated style that 
involves a single patch file with a series of commits created by `git format

That patch is already in the master branch of mxe, I'd recommend you switch to 
that as it's very much more up-to-date. The patch in master is an example of 
the git-style patch and should apply to stable as nsis hasn't done a release 
for a long time.
