	pkg www/jakarta-tomcat's rc.d script restart is too quick.

	It doesn't wait for the old jvm (and servlet container) to die after
	stop before it attempts to start again.  When the start part of the
	restart occurs resources from the old instance are still allocated
	and the servlet container can't obtain them (e.g. it can't open socket
	on server port).  All kinds of exceptions ensue from this.

	Also, the location of the etc/rc.d script `/usr/pkg/etc/rc.d/tomcat'
	sucks can it not be installed in /etc/rc.d instead?

	Install jakarta-tomcat, start it and then try to restart it with it's
	rc.d script.
	There's been some magic added to some scripts recently that wait for
	pid's before restarting.. I can think of mountd being one of them.
