Klasses.jar needs to be rebuilt

I have grabbed a fresh checkout from CVS a couple of hours ago and have
built Kaffe on linux-ppc. Everything compiled OK, but the resulting
version of kaffe didn't seem to work.

I have invoked kaffe with '-vmdebug NATIVELIB' enabled; the problem was
a missing native (??) implementation of java.Class.newInstance(). That
method is implemented in Java, not as a native method. I rebuilt
Klasses.jar and everything was fine.

As nice side effect of this, I don't get any more VerifyErrors. I used
jikes 1.14
