I have added tomcat_enable="YES" to my rc.conf.
When I try run /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ start it just does not 
seem to do anything. Is there something I am missing? I type the command 
(as root) hit enter and it just goes to the next prompt line. Tried to 
go to localhost:8080 (and 8180) but nothing. Is there somewhere I can 
check to find out what is going wrong?
