Eh?  The "const" means the contents of the array aren't going to change, 
not that it points to static memory.  From findInJar.c:

			data = NULL;
			if (sbuf.st_size > 0)
alloc  >>			data = KMALLOC((size_t)sbuf.st_size);
				if (data == 0) {
					goto done;


			classFileInit(hand, data, (unsigned)sbuf.st_size, CP_DIR);

The classFileInit then transfers the memory to the classFile object.
