SOLVED: Tomcat installation from source

Link to this post 09 Feb 12

I have some trouble with Tomcat installation. I've just instaled java to /usr/local, set JAVA_HOME, unpack tomcat to its directory set apropriate TOMCAT_HOME, CATALINA_HOME, set everything neccesary to login.defs variable ENV_SUPATH and after running I had some variable print and falure after them: Could not find or load main class org.apache.catalina.util.ServerInfo. I've found that there is not the file bootstrap.jar according variable CLASSPATH ($CATALINA_HOME/bin/bootstrap.jar. Where I made mistake during installation? Have this file some kind of connection with failure? Thanks for any kind of help!
