If I remember correctly, the problem is that "make check" (or even
the "kaffe" script) assumes that ":" is used as separator in CLASSPATH.
It is ";" on Windows, even in Cygwin.

Using ":" and "/" on all platforms (that are able to compile Kaffe) 
should fix the problem. Though I'm not sure that it's the best solution.
