I'm running on OS X 10.7.  If you follow the instructions in the
falcon/trunk/README you should not have to make any edits to build.xml
assuming your directory tree looks like it does in svn.

Before trying to build Falcon, you must:

1. Build the the "develop" branch of the SDK at
incubator/flex/sdk/branches/develop by doing 'ant main'.
See the README there for instructions.

2. Set the environment variables JAVA_HOME, ANT_HOME, and
PLAYERGLOBAL_HOME as when building the SDK.

3. Set the environment variable JFLEX_JAR to point to the JAR file for
JFlex 1.4.3.

sdk.branch is set to <property name="sdk.branch"
value="${compiler}/../../../sdk/branches/develop"/>. If this is not the
case for you, rather than edit build.xml invoke it with
ant -Dsdk.branch=/path/to/sdk

or add falcon/complier/local.properties and set sdk.branch in there.
