According to Sun's docs...

  When the compiler needs type information, it looks for a source
  file or class file which defines the type. The compiler searches
  first in the bootstrap and extension classes, then in the user
  class path. The user class path is defined by setting the CLASSPATH
  environment variable or by using the -classpath command line option.
  (For details, see Setting the Class Path). If you use the -sourcepath
  option, the compiler searches the indicated path for source files;
  otherwise the compiler searches the user class path both for class
  files and source files. You can specify different bootstrap or
  extension classes with the -bootclasspath and -extdirs options; see
  Cross-Compilation Options below. 

[Cross-Compilation Options:]

  -bootclasspath bootclasspath 
      Cross-compile against the specified set of boot classes.
      As with the user class path, boot class path entries are
      separated by semicolons (;) and can be directories, JAR
      archives, or ZIP archives.
