As the line says, that only builds the documentation (and apparently
copies over the source). The javadoc ends up in
${tomcat.src}/output/dist/webapps/docs/api. The source ends up in
${tomcat.src}/output/dist/src.

To get the JAR files:

1. Install JDK 1.5 (see caveats as to building with later versions)
2. Set JAVA_HOME to point to the JDK 1.5 installation
3. Make sure JAVA_HOME/bin is in your path
4. Install Ant (I used 1.8.4 for my test)
5. Edit build.properties appropriately
6. run 'ant download' to get all of the dependencies
7. run 'ant' to build Tomcat
8. look in ${tomcat.src}/output/build/lib for the JAR files

The build took about 10 seconds on my i5 laptop running Fedora 20 x64
with 8 GB of memory.

Dunno if I'm missing something here . . .
