jaxp.jar and parser.jar are included in the current beta.  Which means that
tomcat can be installed as simply as downloading, unzip/untar-ing, and
executing startup.bat/sh.

Even better, switching from Sun's JAXP to Apache's Xerces will be as simple
as replacing these two jars in the lib directory with xerces.jar (vintage
1.1.2 or later).
