Do you get any errors on the javac?  Did you get any errors from javac when you used it without
the -cp arguments?  (If you didn't, then something is seriously broken in javac, since it
wouldn't know how to resolve references to the javax.servlet package.)

Does javac actually produce anything useful on your Mac?

You must have one or the other in order to run Tomcat from the scripts - unless your installation
has modified the standard scripts.  The value of JAVA_HOME should be the path of the directory
in which a JDK is installed, and JRE_HOME is the path to the JRE, if you're not using a JDK.

How are you starting Tomcat?  If it's from within an IDE, that may be masking a multitude
of sins.
