So far we have used valgrind and Rational Purify , but if you have
better tools in hand that's fine.

That depend on where you going to deploy axis2c services, If you using
axis2c apache module and you are going to fix server side memory leaks, 

Yes, You need to run valgrind on the httpd executable.

I have used valgrind for a while, but I can't recall that It asked for
include files. Normally I ran as

valgrind <options> <executable name>

Just in case if you need include files you could refer to

$AXIS2C_HOME is where your installation directory is (I repeat,
installation directory :))

If you have anything to be clarified please feel free to ask.
