You would define this as a property in an appropriate place. But it has
nothing to do with <classpath>-elements inside your buildfile unless you
reference the property using ${classpath}.

I think the main problem is that the definition of your classpath is wrong.
The way you define it it only points to directories and would work if you
unjar the jar/zip files which are located there. If you would like to
include all the jar-files located in these directories you should use
something like

<path id="home.path">
   <fileset dir="D:\Program Files\jdk1.3\lib">
        <include name="**/*.jar"/>
   <fileset dir="D:\Program Files\jakarta-tomcat\lib">
        <include name="**/*.jar"/>
