I've never seen DROPLOG; it's some kind of extension, no? What I have
seen people do is something like this:

iptables -N logndrop
iptables -A logndrop -j LOG
iptables -A logndrop -j DROP

and then use -j logndrop wherever they want to log and drop a packet.

Personally, I don't find it too much trouble to specify 2 lines (a log
and a drop) each time I want to discard a packet. It gives me the added
benefit of specifying a separate --log-prefix for each place in my
filter that things are dropped.

good times,
