Junit on Ubuntu does not contain hamcrest and sets no classpath

Bug Description

Binary package hint: junit

Junit on Ubuntu and Debian does not contain hamcrest and sets no classpath in the manifest, causing breaks for users who not have hamcrest in the classpath by accident. Hamcrest is an indirect dependency via Junit.

Workaround: Use https://github.com/downloads/KentBeck/junit/junit-4.9b2.jar containing hamcrest.

The junit package contains the version 3.8.2 which never included hamcrest. The classpath was fixed in the version 4.8.2-2 of the junit4 package.
