Easy:

C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0.18> bin\shutdown.sh

Fixed.

You would have to read the entire Subversion repository history
involving Tomcat, evaluate each commit to determine its applicability
to each CVE, apply them in order, fix any conflicts, then build the
resulting source tree.

Oh, and you'd then once again have an unsupported version of Tomcat
(unsupported by both the ASF and Autonomy).

Tomcat does not provide patches for CVEs: instead, the Tomcat team
provides whole new versions that include (alleged) fixes for those
CVEs. It's time to upgrade: you are hideously out of date.

If Autonomy won't support running on a properly-patched version of
Tomcat, then you shouldn't be running their software.
