It would be nice if they published what version of Linux/Apache/Tomcat the
available binary was compiled for. I think it's pretty confusing for new
users when you say "Hey, here's a binary", but they don't understand all the
reasons why it won't work with their platform. It's such an easy process to
compile your own -- especially with the Makefile's provided. Maybe they
should just get rid of the binary and distribute the mod_jk source with
every Tomcat distribution. Is that feasible?
