If CLASSPATH is not set, kaffe will append /usr/local/share/kaffe/*.[zip,jar]
However if it IS set, kaffe doesn't do this. This seems to be intentional.

IMHO, this is broken, it should always append these files.
Then we can just say "dump all your jar and zip files into 
/usr/local/share/kaffe" and be done with it.

I use report-kaffe-bug AND mail them to the list... the first so they
are properly registered, and the second so everyone can see them.
