I can confirm this. If I configure icedtea-web with icedtea6-1.8, I get
the same failures. If I use an icedtea6-1.10 (or later I presume) build,
things work fine.

An error like this normally indicates that package-private classes are
loaded by different class loaders. When running a 'make check' the
application classloader is used to load both netx.jar (or it's renamed
version classes.jar) and the test code. If netx.jar is in the
bootclasspath, however, then the JVM loads it from there and you get
this problem because two classes in the same package are now being
loaded by different classloaders.
