Always grab a zip/tar.gz from tomcat.apache.org and extract it yourself, then build Sakai into it. Other tools needed like svn, maven and java can all be managed via the package manager (assuming correct versions are available).

Thank you, Steve. I think I will go through the package manager
repositories for a few big distributions and see which has the most
complete/recent toolkit in relation to Sakai before making my choice.
