CLASSPATH points to rt.jar but it still complains about missing classes.
This is probably because of the following:

snip from the end of gmake output

(deflated 61%)
  adding: META-INF/services/javax.sound.sampled.spi.MixerProvider
(deflated 47%)
(cd lib && zip -DX -r ../rt.jar gnu java javax kaffe org)
        zip warning: name not matched: java
        zip warning: name not matched: javax
        zip warning: name not matched: org
  adding: gnu/regexp/MessagesBundle_fr.properties (deflated 49%)
  adding: gnu/regexp/MessagesBundle.properties (deflated 52%)
  adding: kaffe/io/ByteToCharEUC_JP.tbl (deflated 24%)

For some reason it cant find java&javax&org classes and zip them into
rt.jar :(. When/if i get around this I'll send a patch.
