The instructions worked when I tried them - but that was a long time ago, 
I haven't rebuilt jasmin since, I always just used the initial version I built.

I don't think he is subscribed to the Lazarus mailing list, so better contact him in private.
Maybe he'll find time to update the instructions (and/or the needed patches).
