The NoClassDefFoundError is correct, I think.  The SecurityException is 
because a non-primordial class loader has found the class file and is 
trying to define the class.  However, the class file should only be in the 
boot class path and not the regular class path.  So, you should make sure 
that rt.jar is not in CLASSPATH.

Also, the current CVS version doesn't work for me at all:

error compiling:

"at/dms/kjc/CReferenceType" is overriden in class
