I doubt that's the error message you get, as it says 'localport'.

I'm using kaffe from CVS, tomcat 4.1.29. I didn't patch conf/web.xml 
this time around, I added -Dbuild.compiler=kjc to JAVA_OPTS, so that it 
looks like this

export JAVA_OPTS="-mx256M -Dbuild.compiler=kjc"

my JAVA_HOME is set to where I installed kaffe.

See screenshot at http://www.kaffe.org/~robilad/tomcat-4.1.29-screenshot.png

could you try running tomcat with bin/catalina.sh run, and report back 
if there were any errors? If that fails, I'm often on IRC [1] so we can 
try to debug it together.
