That's a jdk configuration problem, not a tomcat problem.
If you can successfully get run a simple command like:
java -version
then you can move on to the tomcat-related stuff.

I've never gotten jdk 1.3 to work in BSD,
but you should make sure that the following files exist:

If they exist somewhere else (eg. /bin/cut ) then copy them to the expected
location (or link them)
Hope this helps!
