Hi Bryan,

I am able to successfully build the 10.3 branch when my shell is 
operating in a Java 5 environment. I can't answer your question about 
10.2 because I am compiling on Mac OS X--in that environment I find that 
I have to change my ant.properties when switching between building 10.2 
and 10.3.

Could you run the 10.2 build experiment on your machine and let me know 
how it works for you: Bring up a new shell window, set it to operate in 
a Java 5 environment, then try building 10.2.
