Why not run it on 8080 as the _tomcat user, and use the packet filter to
redirect the incoming port 80 traffic to port 8080?

If you are handicapped by using windos, your broadband router may be able
to do port forwarding from its external interface, port 80, to your
"server:8080"

See: http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/tomcat/chapter/ch06.pdf

Also covers security manager and some nice OpenBSD security tips that
can be cludged on Linux.
