Hi Thorsten,

Thanks for your help. So far I've done the following:

1. Downloaded latest (as of 08/26/2014) log4cxx from trunk and put it in 
directory called: apache-log4cxx-from-svn

2. Installed jdk-8u20-windows-i586

3. Went here http://logging.apache.org/log4cxx/building/ant.html

4. Downloaded and extracted apache-ant-1.9.4-bin.zip.

5. Followed the steps in my extracted copy of apache-ant-
1.9.4/manual/index.html for Windows to set ANT_HOME and JAVA_HOME, and added 
%ANT_HOME%\bin to PATH.

6. Changed to %ANT_HOME% and ran: ant -f fetch.xml -Ddest=system
This resulted in a successful build message.

7. Downloaded and extracted cpptasks-1.0b5.zip.

8. The steps at http://ant-contrib.sourceforge.net/ say to, "See the cc 
tasks for installation instructions for cpptasks." When I go to the link for 
'cc' (http://ant-contrib.sourceforge.net/cpptasks/index.html) it says, 
"Place cpptasks.jar into Ant's classpath by placing in Ant's lib 

But now I'm stuck because there is no cpptasks.jar in cpptasks-1.0b5.zip.

What is my next step?
