That does work but we have found that it leaves all files with windows
linefeeds.  In some cases this causes the #!/bin/sh to not be recognized by
the shell.  Plus it annoys me for no good reason having to see all those
^M's when I use vi.  We have even had problems with some of the xml files
that come with tomcat that when we convert the linefeeds to unix linefeeds
all the problems go away.

The most interesting aspect of all this is that it is heavily dependent on
the version of tomcat.  I had very little problem in the 4.0 series but
significant problems with the 4.1 series.

Don't quote me on this as I was in a panic when I couldn't get the .tar file
to work, but I think I used the .zip version and used jar -xvf to unpack it
on HP-UX 11.
