It looks like the vst header file wasn't patched correctly, it should 
look like:

struct VstFileType
		if (_name)
			strcpy (name, _name);
		if (_macType)
			strcpy (macType, _macType);
		if (_dosType)
			strcpy (dosType, _dosType);
		if (_unixType)
			strcpy (unixType, _unixType);
		if (_mimeType1)
			strcpy (mimeType1, _mimeType1);
		if (_mimeType2)
			strcpy (mimeType2, _mimeType2);

Also make sure you are patching the correct file. Somehow I have headers 
in /usr/local/include/vst and /usr/src/fst-1.6/vst and the one used is 
the second one.
Also, you do not need to place plugins in a specific directory, you can 
call jack_fst with the plugin's full path (use " if the path name 
contains spaces)


PD I get the digest, so Mark has probably answered already... =)
