Just add the line "SocksPort 9150". It doesn't really matter where you add it, but putting it in the default ports area might be less confusing in the long run.
First, the TorBrowser by default already has SocksPort 9150, so why add it? And second, I fail to see how this would add Tor support in the JonDo client.
I should have said to add the line "SocksPort 9050".
Standalone Tor installs still have "SocksPort 9050" by default. But they switched to "SocksPort 9150" in Tor browser to avoid port conflict for people running both standalone Tor and Tor browser.
