The ASF routinely releases binaries in Javaland, and even in httpd, 
binaries are released by the ASF for httpd for Windows.

As Java binaries work everywhere (in theory), it is straightforward to 
make and depend on released binaries as there is only one binary to release.

Maven supports the idea of both platform independent and platform 
specific binaries, what would be needed would be people willing to build 
binaries for a particular platform.

Alternatively, if JNI bindings exist for APR (no idea what interface 
tomcat uses, but I am assuming there is some kind of Java wrapper there 
somewhere), the JNI bindings can be published to a maven repo, and the 
APR could then be deployed according whatever the best practice was on 
that platform (rpm, deb, pkg, whatever).
