try this:

export myclasses="CLASS1,CLASS2"
fai --class $myclasses --verbose ........


export classes="CLASS1 CLASS2"
fai --verbose ........

I guess the man page is a bit confusing. If you spcify --class you
must add the comma separated list of classes. If you do not specify
--class, then the variable $classes is used.
