As you said there are some inconsistencies in Install documents. I hope 
somebody will fix them soon.
However I'l like to add these about the build scripts
build.sh, build_all.sh, clean_all.sh are in my opinion not designed to 
be used by normal users. They
are some utiility scripts that help the developers in their process. I 
don't recommend a normal
user to use it. But a developer can edit and modify it to suite his tastes.
The normal procedure for users is
build util
build axiom
build xml schema
build woden
build axis2c

If he want he can create his own scripts or modify the above scripts to 
suite him.
I suggest that user documentation should explain the above steps and
it should not recommend using build scripts

I think your initial problem may be because you just executed build.sh 
script. The correct script
to execute is build_all.sh. build.sh does not pre-build util, axiom etc 
before building
axi2c core.

Thanks

users. So it's better to kindly maintain the install guide & scripts !
