You can customize kaffe to do anything you like with CLASSPATH
using /usr/local/share/kafferc and ${HOME}/.kafferc .. for example:

  # Add installed *.zip and *.jar to CLASSPATH
  AUTOZIPJAR=`find -s ${KAFFE_CLASSDIR} \( -name '*.jar' -o -name '*.zip' \) -a \! -name Klasses.jar -a \! -name kjc.jar -a \! -name classes.zip | awk '{ printf ":%s", $1 }'`
