Agreed.

Ultimately a download/install gives you the most control and without more info 
I would say the same.

It very much depends on your set-up, which versions of Java & Tomcat that you 
wish to use, is it released or testing code?, etc. But still, installing 
Tomcat on Gentoo ~x86 (testing in other words) didn't require me to download 
either sun-jimi or sun-javamail-bin here.

So the options I think Enrico has are:

1. Download and install yourself
or
2.  Use the Gentoo forums to find out the Gentoo installation is pulling in 
those deps.
