Ok, I got it to work.

By prepending a colon to the java path like so:

java -cp :/usr/share/java/* org.apache.pdfbox.ExtractText some_file.pdf

the command now works without complaint, converting the pdf to text.

Don't recall atm why & what the : is for here...have to dig deeper
into my notes. Also, this command works regardless of what CLASSPATH
is set to (even setting it to null via `export CLASSPATH=""` works).

And this is all using the stock current debian packages listed in
my first email (purged the libcommons-logging-java_1.1.1 I'd just
installed and re-installed the current 1.1.3).
