The new tomcat was built with the new redhat-rpm-config, so all the
System OS files should be good.  AFAIK the bug you pointed to was to
correct the md5sums issues for mutltiarch builds.

From the bug:
brp-java-repack-jars is a post processing script included in
redhat-rpm-config that removes timestamp differences in jars to ensure
multi-lib packages do not conflict.

They are not distributable by Centos ... and they are IBM Java, not Sun

Debain agreed to indemnify Sun ... we won't.
