I did got it install into /usr/local/lib/java/JPython-1.1 and put this in
CLASSPATH.  I got jpython to produce a hello.class.  When running java
hello, I got java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/python/core/PyObject.

Went back to /usr/local/lib/java/JPython-1.1/org/python/core/, and found 68
.java files sitting there, without .class files.   I tried to compile a few of
them but got errors.  Should there be .class files shipped with JPython?
Or maybe I'm doing something silly.
