We could use the NullSoft install system instead of InstallShield.
HTTP team use MSI (Microsoft Software Installer) but I'm not sure
it's available on all Windows release (may be just WinNT/Win2K)

We should add a DEB (Debian package) and PKG used by Solaris. 
If there is people on the list who have to .deg/.pkg, may we 
suggest them send their build file. I could commit the .spec
for RPM building with it's companion files (patches, init...)

What about adding that in subdirs in tomcat src/build/pkg : ?

jakarta-tomcat/src/build/pkg/DEB	(debian packaging)
jakarta-tomcat/src/build/pkg/RPMS	(redhat packaging)
jakarta-tomcat/src/build/pkg/MSI	(microsoft install system)
jakarta-tomcat/src/build/pkg/NIS  (nullsoft install system)
jakarta-tomcat/src/build/pkg/PKG  (solaris pkg system)
