Unfortunately making our own CD won't work.  According to the security
we have to go through to place a program on a secure machine, we have to
have the software from a trusted Vendor.  As an example, mySql we could

why it has to be done like this, but it does.  I have said the same
thing that I'm sure every one of you is thinking while you're reading

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