Compile Problem

I am pulling my hair out with this one. I thought I understood this, but I guess I don't.
I have 2 classes, both in c:\java\buck\servlets\mortgage.
I have the statement "package " in both.
I have ".", and the servlet jar on my classpath. When I go to compile them from c:\java, the first compiles fine, but the second, which extends the first, returns the following error:
buck\servlets\mortgage\ cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class EventHandlerBase
location: class
public class EnterMortgageHandler extends EventHandlerBase {
Any ideas on what to try? I know this is simple, I am just wasting the whole day on it.

Try this:

C:\Java>set classpath=%classpath%;C:\Java\buck\servlets\mortgage
C:\Java>javac C:\Java\
C:\Java>javac C:\Java\
