 I have, at this point, only populated it with things that I have overridden.  For instance,
CATALINA_BASE/conf only has server.xml, because that's the only file I customized.  Are copies
of all the other ones supposed to be there too?

All directories belong to their distinct place, which is either
CATALINA_HOME or CATALINA_BASE.  In the default configuration they are
in the same place only because those variables have the same value.

In general, whatever you can change in your configuration, belongs to
CATALINA_BASE and should be present there.

In Tomcat 5.5:
The following directories belong to CATALINA_HOME:
- bin
- common
- server

The following directories belong to CATALINA_BASE:
- file "bin/setenv.bat" (or .sh) only.
- conf
- logs
- shared
- temp
- webapps
- work

In later versions of Tomcat the list of directories is similar, but
slightly different.
