Thanks, Jeff.
Well, I've solved the main blocker which was caused by a bug in the 
latest release of m2e.  Somehow, before, my classpath had gotten mangled 
because the archetype did not come up correctly.  Now I have an 
application that loads successfully.

However, still no joy.  I would assume that if I'm not using the tomcat 
plugin, I would access the web service at
http://localhost:8080/cxf/rest/time or
http://localhost:8080//cxf/rest/time as mentioned in the comments,
(instead of port 9999)
but neither works.
