As i said in another thread, i can successfully
generate site-author. Other tests such as
./ test are fine too. Docs in plugins are okay.

I do have the same as you regarding no ANT_HOME
or ant bin in PATH. However even with ANT_HOME set
to an old Ant-1.6.2, i still have no problems.
Forrest should be using its own packaged Ant.

I am using Java-1.4 ... could that be the difference?

That is an obscure message. Was there any other information
just before or just after that which mentioned "catalog"?

No. We don't have any such usage in our build scripts.
