Because it is a ROYAL pain in the a** to create autoconf/automake/libtool

I did most of the hard testing work for the Apache JServ 1.1 stuff with
major help and kudo's to Vadim. Let me tell you, I spent probably about 2
weeks solid working on just that issue alone. It sucked.


If you would like to volunteer to help do it for Tomcat, I'm sure that it
would be appreciated, but the above statements will probably turn you off
from doing it. It is dirty, nasty work.
