okay ... so write permissions is available on all files then ...

where you keep user settings for ant most people dont have it (this was
just a precaution incase you did).

okay you will have to copy xerces.jar from your solaris system or
alternatively get xerces from cvs (goto to get details).

specifically look at these lines in bootstrap. JAVA_HOME should be set to
your java directory and you currently have it set to /usr/local/java. 

Verify that location contains JDK 1.2.2 and not the JRE 1.2.2 - in which
case /usr/local/java/lib/ should not exist but
/usr/local/java/lib/tools.jar should.

Make sure you are not using the kaffe virtual machine/compiler which comes
with default instal on some distributions (notably the red hat distros). In
which case try to uninstall it or put /usr/local/java/bin at the start of
PATH environment variable (by export PATH=/usr/local/java/bin:$PATH if in a
bourne style shell) .

other than that try running javac at commandline and getting compiler
version etc
