Don't worry about this during the install from the repository. I also got
that installing on Ubuntu recently. Running ipa-server-install later will
set up the missing data and pki-tomcat will start fine. At the point apt is
trying to start the service it can't start cleanly. The package configure
probably shouldn't be attempting to start it.
