I installed Apache Tomcat from the ports collection
(/usr/ports/www/tomcat6) without error. From the documentation that
I've seen, starting tomcat is done with the following command

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/tomcat6 start

But when I do this (as root or otherwise), the tomcat process doesn't
seem to start. Should there be some other way of starting the process?
