I'm not Chuck, and i'm not a tomcat expert, but according to your
server configuration and as far as i understand these 3 lines from  
your log, java is looking to some native code to unzip the WAR file,  
which is huffman's compressed (yes, war files can be unzipped).

I had recently to configure a Debian (etch) production server and i
had to manually install the "zip" and "unzip" debian package (only
gunzip was installed "out of the box"). (But anyway i choosed to  
install tomcat from the official apache tomcat server, instead of the  
Debian package - no time to check and compare their modifications to  
the 100% original binary distribution.)
