We get many questions from people who try to use 3rd-party, repackaged
versions of Tomcat, with varying degrees of failure.  Trying to make
sure you weren't in that category.

That's good, but you run a serious risk of missing jars or other things
that might have changed.

The symlinking can be causing some "interesting" behavior if it's not
done carefully and configured where needed in Tomcat.  Copying over
server.xml is certainly not recommended; updating the one that comes
with 5.5.25 for your environment is.
