I've rebuilt and I see the same issue on Linux with OpenJDK 1.6.0.

That is odd. I thought I had rebuilt when I first read Cyriaque's
report, but I'm sure that I have three times now. I'll step back in
svn until I build cleanly again, but probably not tonight.

This last bit doesn't belong in this thread, but I noticed it while
looking into this issue and I'm being lazy. The icon-b.png
error. Maybe not everyone experiences it, but I believe it has been
brought up before. While looking at the issue of this thread, I
noticed build/images/icon-b.png, while the rest of the build is under
build/site. Surely that's the cause of the NullPointer(FileNotFound)
exception that Java throws, but there's a larger problem involved. We
cannot, must not, may not *write* in the filesystem outside the
expected target. I think this issue has been raised in the past.
I'll try to look into it; this is merely the lazy documentation
of what I've found.
