The jar utility seems to have some problems (Aside from the fact that
the sun classes.zip must also be included in the CLASSPATH).

When I try to jar up a simple file I get this error.

% setenv CLASSPATH /tmp/mo/install_kaffe/share/kaffe/Klasses.jar:/soft/java/JDK-1.1.6/lib/classes.zip

% /tmp/mo/install_kaffe/bin/jar -cf Test.jar Test.class
security properties not found. using defaults.
