You manually patch by selecting three or four splines that form either a triangular or rectangular shape, then run the Make Spline Patch command. If your splines don't share points (usually where they intersect), you'll get a "Curves Don't Cross" error.
Don't ever use AutoPatcher. Always manually patch if your're using splines to model.
I don't have Steve Hurley's PatchIt tool, but I'd imagine the plugin came with some form of documentation.
If you want more info on Splines, check out this thread:

well yes, make sure that the connecting points are really merged.

The Modeling with Splines CD is almost finished. It covers the very very basics all the way to some advanced stuff. :)
