I'm going on holiday tomorrow, it is unlikely I will take a look for at 
least a week. However, now that I know someone wants to look at this I 
will document the config steps on a brand new machine image.

In the meantime, the core package is better for doing development work 
(at least in my opinion it is), since you can automate the testing. See 
src/test for examples.

I run these tests in Eclipse, so I don't think I created an Ant target 
for it, but "ant run" should work (assuming ibiblio has not removed any 
of the required jars) and so it should be trivial to add such a test.
