I've tried a couple of configurations.  About twelve hours ago, I tried doing 
just the jars without the update site.
Upon reading your message, I tried using the update site.  I went through the 
Help menu to the "install new software"
choice and plugged in the 

download.eclipse.org/tools/ajdt/36/update

URL. 

The configuration crashed with the same error as before - it's still missing the 
Definition class.

However, the plugins folder now has a folder called
org.aspectj.weaver_1.6etc.  Within that folder there is an aspectjweaver jar. 
 When copied to a separate place and 
unzipped in the name of science, it produces folders: org, aspectj, weaver, 
loadtime, definition, and in that
last one is the Definition.class that somehow isn't getting through to the 
process that needs it.

I agree that AJDT is improperly installed.  I had previously built hand-crafted 
code within Eclipse and possibly
I've leapfrogged ahead to advanced features without a real understanding of how 
to use the intermediate features
of Eclipse that would make it possible to use advanced tools like AJDT.

In my defense, I looked around for documentation before blundering boldly ahead. 
 Did I miss a HOWTO somewhere?

Thanks for all the feedback.
