Please point out my stupidity! (Newbie question)

I have been working on this problem for a week or so now with no real
success. I have successfully compiled kaffe-1.0b4 and installed it. I
even did a 'make check' to see if there were any problems detected.
Everything seemed to check out just fine. 

When I try to compile and run even the simplest java code, it bombs out.

[12:0] hickey at morril:~sources/kaffe-1.0.b4/test/regression
%> java Hello.class                                                    
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Hello/class
        at java.lang.Throwable.<init>(
        at java.lang.Error.<init>(
        at java.lang.LinkageError.<init>(

I have looked around all over the place and could not find any pointers
to the problem that I am experiencing.

I tried playing with the CLASSPATH variable and it seemed to confirm
that it is set properly. 

At this point I am at a loss. Does anyone have any ideas?
