This however is a Gentoo packaging problem and not a user problem.

If you want to get tomcat working as quickly as possible - download  
it directly from
apache.org and IGNORE the gentoo packages.

If you want it to work properly as a gentoo package either contact  
the package admin/
Gentoo user mailing list, or fix it yourself.

My recommendation:

Do not install Java or Tomcat from distributions, always install them  
yourself -

A) Its easier
B) It works with no nasty side effects....
