I added "ant download" to native trunk, which retrieves the TC 6 sources
for the version defined in

"ant compile" then copies over the needed package.

One can also fake the downloaded Tomcat sources by setting tomcat.src to
the source directory (e.g. when the TC release including Java changes
waits for the native release including native changes, so there's no
correct Tomcat source download yet available).
