Does each office have their own copy of the software running /on the
same machine/? If so, i think you might be out of luck.

If they're on different machines, then you can just pick the target
directory that is appropriate for the configuration file.

If you're all on one machine, then maybe you can create the
/usr/local/tomcat5/conf directory and use separate symlinks for each
individual file -- perhaps that will do the trick. I don't quite
understand your deployment strategy, so I can't be sure if I know that
you mean.

Just 'cause I'm curious: what software are you running?
