I personally use Microchip's ICD2, ICD3 and Real ICE for all my PIC debugging/programming needs, so I can offer little opinion concerning a pickit2 clone design.
However there has been several length discussion threads concerning pickit2 design which you may find helpful.
Including the following

Hope you do not mind me asking, but wondered why you are apparently looking to build a complicated parallel port programmer ?
If you are intending to use Pics - then would not a simple USB diy clone like a pickit2 Lite be much better ?
I've done my own and know they work well.

IS SOMEBODY INTERESTING IN A SIMILAR DEVELOPMENT BOARD LIKE EASYPIC4.
DIFERENCE IS WHAT IT WORKS WITH MPLAB OR pickit2, THE PROGRAMMER IS COMPATIBLE WITH pickit2

Go to Microchip and download and install the latest version of the pickit2 software.
If you run the software and do Help, readme, you will find a list of the chips it supports. It does support the Pic16F84, allthough this chip is a little dated now and expensive, not recomended for new designs.
The pickit2 is a nice bit of kit and supports lots

The best route to follow is to buy a pickit2 and develop from mplab. Its not everyone's favourite but it works and has a good help system.
The alternative is to get a schematic for the pickit and build it yourself but if it fails to work you will not know where the problem lies.
Old programmers like the JDM also work but serial ports are getting

Buy a pickit2 from Microchip. It will cost you less than to build one yourself (?24).
Then you can program and debug a large range of Pic chips.
You can also download the schematic and firmware from Microchip.
