Are you trying to run Tomcat with the Apache Portable Runtime (APR)?

If so, that component is optional so you might want to try to get Tomcat going without it before worrying about it.

And could you please do all our eyes a favor by changing your display name to use mixed case rather than all uppercase? Thanks!
