Yes this document is out of date in several ways actually.  Firstly as 
you rightly point out, all patches that you need are now integrated with 
libvirt CVS.  You shouldn't need any extra patches now.  Secondly that 
document refers to building libvirt using Cygwin.  I wouldn't recommend 
using Cygwin -- instead you should use MinGW + MSYS.

Instructions for MinGW + MSYS are here:

Yes, it needs to be updated.
