The best docs I can find at the moment are at the end of this page:

although it concentrates on how to set up default subjects and run-as  
subjects which most people probably won't have to do.

To summarize, the mapping goes in a <security> element in your  
geronimo plan (e.g. geronimo-web.xml) and this element contains  
explicit mappings between the javaee roles defined in your application  
and the principals produced by whatever login modules you have
