Hi Bryan,

For what it's worth, I have just successfully built the docs using a 
Java 5 environment. I say "successfully" because

1) after reams of severe FOP warnings, ant said cheerfully "BUILD SUCCEEDED"

2) I looked at the pdf, mono-html, and frame-based-html versions of the 
Reference Guide and they looked ok to me
