The jar tool for version 1.0.5 was totally broken. It is fixed
now, you would need to get a CVS version. That brings up a
good point, when is a 1.0.6 release going to be made? Red Hat
7.0 is now in beta and I don't want to see another version
shipped with kaffe 1.0.5.

The "update" feature in Sun's jar for JDK 1.2 was not implemented.
I could not think of a good way to do it other than just extracting
the whole archive into a temp directory and then creating a whole
new archive. If you would like to add that feature, the code is here:
