I am surprised to learn that there is a Slackbuild for tomcat. Tomcat is 
pretty easy to install without a Slackbuild. Just unzip it in some 
directory and your are good to go. As a bonus, you can run/test multiple 
versions of Tomcat this way. Just rm -rf the directory to uninstall 
without any traces left on your system.

My 2 cents for what it's worth ;-)
