I quickly tried to compile kissme and classpath, my notes are attached. This is 
not meant to be quite such a manual process, we are in the middle of fixing the 
build scripts. 

I tested a simple case (haven't run mauve yet).

As you can see in the last line there, kissme needs the class files to be 
unpacked. It can load .jar and .zip files, but since that code is java code, it 
needs to get all the core stuff from the filesystem first.

Could we add an option to 'make install' which would copy all .class files to a 
$prefix/share/classpath/classes directory?

<new topic>

It's wonderful that classpath can compile itself without requiring any VM 
files. Am I correct in saying that classpath depends only on the auto* 
programs, gcc, jikes and zip?

I want to build a debian package when the new release comes out. Prior to this 
I always built a package with kissme-specific VM files, now I can remove this 
dependency (and effort).
