Aah, I saw that afterward.

I use Tomcat on Gentoo, but I don't use portage to install Tomcat... I
do that myself. You might want to just download the binary package
directly from the Jakarta site and use that.

The blackdown JDK is one of the oldest non-Sun JDKs available for Linux.
I believe that it is completely open source. Someone mentioned that
blackdown was based on Sun's code... I think that's completely false:
blackdown was always a "more free" competitor to Sun's implementation.
