blind spot for java


I know this might seem a little strange but my system seems to have developed 
a blind spot for Java.

I have a JDK installed in /usr/local/jdk1.5.0_04/ when I attempt to execute

foo@bar$ /usr/local/jdk1.5.0_04/bin/java

I get

bash: /usr/local/jdk1.5.0_04/bin/java: No such file or directory

which is quite plainly wrong as the file most certainly does exist and has 
execution rights. I have another (very slightly older and 64-bit) version of 
Java installed via java-package which works fine but I need to get this one 

Any ideas what might be wrong?

All the other applications seems to be working fine. I have re-installed the 
JDK and tried other versions and all produce the same message. This is a long 
shot I know but I am using the 64bit debian port and this is a 32bit VM it is 
therefore relying on some libraries provided by the 32bit chroot. It was 
working fine yesterday but I also upgraded the chroot yesterday. I'm wonering 
if the two could be linked. The problem is that it just doesn't seem to even 
find the java file to get.

TIA, Graham.
