I'm not sure whether you are asking the right people here, as all of
us will be using jakarta-ant, but probably many are using none of the
other things you've listed.

Ant will work in whatever directory you install it, as long as you set
the environment variable ANT_HOME - at least it is supposed to.

I've installed Tomcat in several different directories on different
machines without any problems so far, setting TOMCAT_HOME correctly
should do the trick (but I'm running Tomcat in stand alone mode
without an external webserver).

AFAIK, all you really need is the library servlet.jar that you should
place into the CLASSPATH when building webapps or running Tomcat - the
binary distributions of Tomcat already include it.
