Prior to this change, the directory hierarchy looked like this:

            <<TOMCAT project build stuff>>

        <<TOMCAT source tree>>

and after this change, it looks like this:

        <<TOMCAT source tree ...>>
                <<TOMCAT project build stuff>>

It seems to me that, if we want this change, two additional things should happen:

* Make the same change in each of the other projects,
  which probably do the same thing (I don't have the CVS
  tree in front of me to check).

* Change "./build/tomcat/*" to "./build/*" everywhere
  to eliminate the redundant "tomcat" subdirectory
  underneath "build".

On the other hand, I can see value in having the "build" hierarchy as it originally was --
the least
of the benefits is that a "cvs commit" or "cvs update" at the jakarta-tomcat level does not
have to
waste time scanning the build directory.  I would actually prefer the original approach for
