I think there is something in at least one BSD that allows you to run
linux binaries, but that file, I think, is a self extracting shell
script license and binary(ies) which would have run under the emulator.

Oh wait, there is a 4 page article in issue 7 (summer 2002) of daemon
news I picked up at the meeting last night (heh, thought it was
current), I can't photocopy it because a lot is printed with red
background and my digital camera is on the brink.

...oh wait, http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/articles/java-tomcat/
same authors/title, updated this year.
