But if they ARE set, we should use them first. Otherwise it
will be hard to test new JVMs with the default start scripts.

Say I have a production tomcat running and want to test out
a new IBM JDK1.4 ... 

export JAVA_HOME=~/superIBMjdk1.4
tomcat/bin/tomcat start

I think setting JAVA_HOME should be encouraged, so use that 
as the default, and only guess if its not set
