By the error, it looks like it might be the "wrong" version of
commons-codec (it's a NoSuchMethodException instead of a
NoClassDefFoundError). Depending on the version/distro of Hadoop you're
running against, some things that are provided by Apache just aren't
provided by your version. Feel free to sent back Hadoop version info if
you need some more help tracking down the problem.

It looks like for Accumulo 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7 (current unreleased master
branch), we depend on commons-codec-1.4 if that helps you track down
where this dependency is/isn't coming from.
