or IntelliJ IDEA, which is a better value distro, IMO.

On the original posters needs - why not get the source from CVS, build it
yourself and burn your own disk.

There will be no viruses because Java viruses are not out in the wild. You
still have to worry about security of the content; even if there is nothing
in CVS, there is still that famous hack Kernigan did to the Unix login
program by modifing the C compiler to place the back door in when login got
rebuilt, and to replicate the back door insertion code when cc got rebuilt.

you probably need to start by building jikes from C++ source using a trusted
C++ compiler, then use that to build xerces and ant.
