Kaffe now provides its own implementation of the Java Core API, and it 
is different from the one provided by Sun.  Native methods and
internal representations of classes are different, so you can't expect 
Kaffe to accept the Core API implementation of Sun.

You may still include classes.zip *after* Klasses.jar, if you still
wish to run `javac', for example, but this is illegal, because
classes.zip is not GPL'ed, and you can't link GPL'ed and non-GPL'ed
code together.
