Only JMRI version 3.0, released two days ago (and the prior test releases), has the ARM support you need in the lib/linux/armv5 subdirectory. Neither 2.14 nor 2.14.1 is good enough. Everything you did after you found the armv5 subdirectory missing was a waste of time, and quite possibly counterproductive.
You need to start again with a nice new JMRI. The Linux version of 3.0 is unavailable through the usual channels, due to an apparent administrative oversight, but it can be obtained via http://jmri.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/ ... hrev=20870
Even then, the possibility exists (as MattH pointed out) that neither your openjdk nor the JMRI ARM support is compatible with Raspbian armv6 hardfp. Good luck with that. Plain Debian should work. For avoidance of doubt I neither know nor care about this (see sig)
