This sounds like something is different with the packaging of the tomcat
jars and how the Sysdeo plugin expects them to be. You should file a
bug against the tomcat package to track this, but you could also email
the JPackage project since the tomcat RPMs in Fedora come from there
(AFAIK). In fact, I recall reading something on jpackage-discuss about
tomcat jar contents a few months ago ... perhaps this is related.
