:/ You should have spoken up sooner. Please post the logs, and
preferably (to me privately) the full logs for 'ant -verbose'. You do
have a clean classpath, don't you?

Actually, the junit test compilation step IS separated out (following
Carsten's suggestion last week), and junit shouldn't be needed for a
normal build.  Nor is it if you build each subproject on it's own, but
if you build from the root, the junit.jar dep somehow creeps in. Very
weird.. possibly an Ant bug. Can be illustrated with 'ant -verbose -f
depchecker.xml checkFramework', and examining the "complete build
sequence", which includes checkJUnit even though checkFramework has no
deps. I'm trying to trace it now.

I need logs then. Which component? What is the error?

It should be. If it's not, it's a bug. If it's a bug, we need good
bugreports to fix it :)
