java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: initializeSystemClass

I've recently compiled the lastest version of kaffe (0.10.1) on my i386
NetBSD box, and did everything according to instructions.  It configured,
built (make netbsd), and installed without any errors.  I also took my file from my working JDK1.15, and along with, I
put it into:


all set to their proper locations.

However when I run kaffe or the appletviewer I get the error message:

	java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: initializeSystemClass

I even get this error when I do a simple "make test" on the distribution
tree.  What am I doing wrong?

According to the Change Log:

        Various changes for Java 1.1 support, enabled by USING_JDK_1_1.
        * kaffe/kaffvm/baseClasses.c:  Explicitly load java.lang.System
        as new variable SystemClass, and call initialzeSystemClass.

The newly created variable SystemClass would likely have something to do
with my problem, but I am not sure what I need to do to fix it.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Sincerely, Alicia.
