I tested the instructions with this version.

You don't select project's properties. You select the header file's
(which you want to compile with the ODB compiler) properties. There
in the "General" tab and in its "Tool" field I see Custom Build Tool.
There is also the "Custom Build Step" tab where I can enter all the 
information mentioned in the guide. 

What is the extension of the file that you want to compile with ODB?
Perhaps Netbeans thinks that it is a C++ source file instead of a 
header file, for some reason?
