I stepped through the beginning of the program, and found that it
tries to get and use the java.class.path property - one which we don't
set right now.

Here's a work around patch that lets iHash run correctly:

diff -u -r1.7

+  SET ("java.class.path", ".");
   SET ("file.encoding", default_file_encoding);

An intermediate solution would be to set these properties at configure
time.  The real problem is that we like our tools to be location
independent - allowing you to move install trees from one place to
another and still have them work.  Maybe we should set these
properties at link time via jvgenmain?  I think that might work.
