I'm not aware of the issue. I just tried building with JDK 1.3.1_18
(from Sun) and maven1 with the source/target options set to 1.3. Once
I followed the instructions for "dependency.jdbc" and ran with the
"-Dmaven.test.skip=true" the only problems I had were with the
checkstyle and findbugs plugins which were created with later JDK
versions - commenting those out and it built fine.

Seems though that the  maven1 build for Commons Configuration has so
many JDK 1.3 gotchas that having the source/target options set and
building with JDK 1.4+ would be the best option for anyone else
wanting to build from source.
