I've added an option to select the static C RTL as bug https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOGCXX-254

.  To build a static log4cxx library which uses the static  
multithreaded C RTL use:

ant -Dlib.type=static -Druntime=static -Dfind=false

A dynamic log4cxx library which uses the static C RTL is unsafe since  
the API passes STL strings over the DLL boundary which can easily  
result in strings being allocated by one C RTL and freed by another.   
The unit tests will fail quickly with heap corruption assertions or  
access violations.

Unfortunately, the Microsoft Visual Studio.NET and later solution file  
(.sln) format is not obvious and cpptasks does not generate it like  
the VC6 .dsw file.  I believe that I had some luck with a combination  
of a .dsw and .vcproj's, but since I wasn't planning on providing VC7  
or later project files with the log4cxx 0.10.0 release, I didn't  
explore further.  It looks like there is an analysis of the format at http://www.ondotnet.com/pub/a/dotnet/excerpt/vshacks_chap1/index.html?page=4

RC3 hopefully on Monday.
