AFAIK kaffe classes.zip is exactly unix JDK classes.zip. So you can use
JDK classes (I do it that way - having JDK and kaffe both installed and
sharing classes.zip for both).
I don't think that you can use win32 classes.zip - there are thing like
Win32Process vs UnixProcess and sun.awt.win32 vs sun.awt.motif.
BTW I do have a proposal for scripts which will came with next version of
kaffe. If somebody have both JDK and kaffe installed scripts mess up -
javac, javap etc. I solved it by introducing JAVAI env variable equal to
kaffe or java and then using $JAVAI in scripts. With small check setting
this variable to kaffe if not defined it could work well.
