$ apt-cache policy tomcat5
  Installed: 5.0.28-1
  Candidate: 5.0.28-1
  Version Table:
 *** 5.0.28-1 0
        500 http://apt.leapster.org ./ Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

$ grep leapster /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://apt.leapster.org/tomcat ./
deb-src http://apt.leapster.org/tomcat ./

Hope that helps. I have been using that particular build in production
for quite a while now. It works better than the .tar.gz as it is works
the debian way, pretty much. The best part is he gave use the source for
it too. You could update it to the latest TC5, but that is only @
5.0.30-beta. YMMV.
