The best thing that I found to start out with was a website referred to in the log4cxx mailing list:
http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/logging-log4cxx-user/200705.mbox/%3c10834453.post@talk.nabble.com%3e
 
This post references a blog at http://www.dreamcubes.com/blog/?itemid=43 that discusses building log4cxx using Visual Studio 2005.  I was able to use it as a guide to get a build going under Visual Studio 2003.
 
Bless you merc!

Subject: Getting Started under VS2005


Hello!
I'm new to C++ and am trying to get log4cxx to run under a little console test application written with Visual Studio 2005 C++
Can you please tell me what to add where in order to make your examples under http://logging.apache.org/log4cxx/manual.html
work?
With Regards,
Johannes Frank
