To compile servlets, all you need is servlet.jar somewhere in your classpath. Typically, this jar file is found in the lib directory of your servlet engine. For example, in Tomcat 3.x, it is %TOMCAT_HOME%/lib/servlet.jar. In Tomcat 4.0, it is %TOMCAT_HOME%/common/lib/servlet.jar. It shouldn't be hard to find.
You can compile MyServlet.java with this command:
javac -classpath .;path_to_jar/servlet.jar MyServlet.java
The servlet source code can be anywhere. The .class file should be placed in /WEB-INF/classes or the appropriate subdirectory, if it is in a package.
