Currently, build.xml and have lots of <echo> blocks
describing what to do next.  Eg, at the end of 'forrest webapp':

Webapp generated in /tmp/mysite/build/webapp

To run in Tomcat, add this to the config file (usu. server.xml):

<Context path='/MyProject'

If using JDK 1.4 or above, make sure to set the Java environment variable
Eg, in the TOMCAT_OPTS (3.3.x) or CATALINA_OPTS (4.x) env variable.

Perhaps we should keep these snippets in XML entity files which we &import;
into the build scripts and documentation.
