using ctx_ddl.drop_preference

I'm trying to use ctx_ddl.drop_preference pl/sql package, but getting error while compiling store procedure
"identifier 'CTX_DDL' must be declared"
Can someone explain how and where this package should be used.
I'm lloking at somebody's code and apparently the purpose of it is to convert LONG to CLOB.
Looks like the person is trying to create index for clob value.

In order to make a call to CTX_DDL in a stored procedure, CTXSYS will need to 'grant execute on ctx_ddl to username'.  This direct grant is required - the CTXAPP role is not sufficient.
