Fair enough.

My release-testing script downloads, builds, and tests Tomcat 7 like
this (simplified, since my script is fairly complex):

$ wget ${BASE_URL}/${TOMCAT_SOURCE}
$ tar xzf ${TOMCAT_SOURCE}
$ cd ${TOMCAT_SOURCE_DIR}
$ echo "base.path=/place/to/store/downloads" \
  > "tarball/build.properties"
$ ant download-compile download-test-compile [might not be necessary]
$ ant test

At that point (well, several minutes later), you should have a
completely-tested source tree. Some of the tests may fail if you don't
have tcnative built. I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader to
figure out how to disable those tests (or build tcnative, which isn't
so hard).

If you want to build a deployable Tomcat so you can actually run it
(that is, build something that looks like CATALINA_HOME), you need to do:

$ ant deploy

Actually, "deploy" is the default target, so

$ ant

...should work.

Some people think they must build Tomcat for some reason, even though
we package "binaries" that you can just use.

Happy hacking!
