I've just done a 'build war' on the Forrest 0.4 directory and deployed
the war in Tomcat 4.0.4 without problems.  'forrest run' also works.

Are you using JDK 1.3 or 1.4?  If the webapp is built with JDK 1.3, it
will have xerces and xalan jars in WEB-INF/lib/, whereas under 1.4 it
expects Tomcat or the JVM to supply them.  The XML jars bundled with 1.4
are old/buggy, hence the note:

  "If using JDK 1.4 or above, make sure to set the Java environment
  variable -Djava.endorsed.dirs=./build/dist/shbat/bin/../lib/endorsed
  Eg, in the TOMCAT_OPTS (3.3.x) or CATALINA_OPTS (4.x) env variable."
