Trying to build Tomcat, I get a message "No JAXP compliant XML parser found". Where do I get this parser from and where do I put it?

[JAXP stands for "JavaTM API for XML Parsing" -A] you could get one from http://www.javasoft.com/xml/download.html .

Unpack it somewhere on your system and make sure the parser.jar and the jaxp.jar are included inside your CLASSPATH enviroment variable. [It should also go in TOMCAT_HOME/lib/ I think that it's now included in Tomcat 3.2 distribution in that directory. -Alex]

Then try to rebuild again. It should work now :-)
