jh_manifest will wrap the lines unconditionally.  But that is not the
issue.  The class path entry generated:

Class-Path: /usr/share/java/jar1.jar /usr/share/java/jar2.jar /usr/shar

is perfectly legal and to my knowledge correct (which I believe was the
point Emmanuel was trying to make).  The above will unwrap to (the eqv. of):

Class-Path: /usr/share/java/jar1.jar /usr/share/java/jar2.jar
