The indextype must be in your own schema or you must have the
INDEXTYPE system privilege.
Specify the schema containing the indextype. If you omit
schema, then Oracle Database assumes the indextype is in your own schema.
Specify the name of the indextype to be dropped.
If any statistics types have been associated with indextype, then the database disassociates the statistics type from the indextype and drops any statistics that have been collected using the statistics type.

Dropping an Indextype: Example The following statement drops the indextype
position_indextype, created in "Using Extensible Indexing", and marks
INVALID any domain indexes defined on this indextype:
DROP INDEXTYPE position_indextype FORCE;
