I tried it out in my sandbox Rick, and it worked fine except for one 
thing that probably isn't related to your changes.

The first time I do "ant all" after having done "ant clean" or "ant 
clobber", the build fails when compiling

    [javac] Compiling 1 source file to 
    [javac] Compiling 11 source files to 

package org.apache.oro.text.regex does not exist
    [javac] import org.apache.oro.text.regex.*;

As far as I can understand, for some reason it cannot find the 
jakarta-oro-2.0.8.jar, but it is in my tools/java/ directory where it is 
supposed to be. When I do "ant all" again, it works, but it fails the 
same way every time I have done clean or clobber before. Any idea?
