[vtkusers] vtk paths for java wrappings

I am having a path problem with an isntallation of vtk 
with java wrappings on my intel mac.

The only directory where I can run things from seems to be 
the bin directory containing the vtk.jar file, i.e.:

if I say:

:/scratch/vtk/darwin32/bin anastasia$ javac -classpath 
.:vtk.jar Test.java

:/scratch/vtk/darwin32/bin anastasia$ java -classpath 
.:vtk.jar Test

it runs but doing this from any other directory produces 

:/scratch/vtk/darwin32/bin/TEST anastasia$ javac 
-classpath .:../vtk.jar Test.java

:/scratch/vtk/darwin32/bin/TEST anastasia$ java -classpath 
.:../vtk.jar Test
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: 
no vtkCommonJava in java.library.path
         at java.lang.System.loadLibrary(System.java:992)
         at Test.<clinit>(Test.java:8)

This must be some kind of a path issue. From what I have 
read online, I tried including /scratch/vtk/darwin32/bin 
and /scratch/vtk/darwin32/bin/vtk.jar in both my PATH and 
in my LD_LIBRARY_PATH. But, as you can from see above, 
this does nothing.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
