I've completely punted with Tomcat. I just make a /opt/tomcat tree, 
shove both Sun's JRE and Apache's Tomcat in there, create a custom 
/etc/init.d/tomcat script, and call it good. I keep a tarball of the 
tree and all relevant configs on a network drive, available for 
kickstart %post installation. Getting the gcj-compiled version of 
Tomcat to work with Java keystores was an exercise in futility.
