Afaik, it used to be known as Jakarta-Tomcat, but its new name is 
Tomcat. If you observe it well www/tomcat41 and www/tomcat55 are much 
newer version than www/jakarta-tomcat4 and www/jakarta-tomcat5 and there 
isn't even www/jakarta-tomcat6. I suggest you should just use 
www/tomcat6. I'm also planning to use it and I succeeded to install it 
without problems and I can reach it through the port 8180.
