I apologize for not seeing this bug; I have been trying to pick up
the slack on tomcat4 while Stefan and Arnaud have been snowed under with
other things. We will indeed impose the appropriate runtime
dependencies for the package and include that in the pending release. I
started looking in Apache's documentation for the actual runtime version
dependencies last night, since I would rather impose the correct
versions and not just the ones we currently know that work.
