I have included the native libraries on my local machine because Tomcat kept asking for them, but I'm assuming the only reason is performance, so what sort of boost would we expect?

Tomcat only asks for them if you specifically set the APR connector in your server.xml file, otherwise it will use the pure Java BIO connector if the native libs do not exist.

Using the native libs essentially turns Tomcat into an A[ache Httpd server (quite literally) by leveraging the same code that an Apache Httpd server uses. You should se tremendous performance gains using this connector.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
