Thanks for the pointer. Got the tarball, now I need some help building 
things ;)

Well, I am not familiar with ant or waf, thus I'd probably be stuck with 
either build/install mechanism.

Trying to add SUSE support into the configure script I am wondering what 
the negative side effects are of not having the tomcat expression 
language jar file (tomcat6-el-1.0-api.jar)?

We currently do not build this jar file for SLE. Although I can 
certainly build it in OBS.
