The CORBA problems come up as part of the OpenEJB build.  If you only
check out Geronimo, not OpenEJB, it should download an OpenEJB binary
and I think build fully under 1.5 (including the full J2EE
assemblies).  However, there's not normally a reason to build under
1.5, since you can just build under 1.4 and then run it under 1.5.
(Also, depending on how recent the OpenEJB binary is, it may not work
to just have it download as part of the build.)

The deployment plans are under configs (e.g. configs/jetty-deployer).
The modules are under modules (e.g. modules/jetty-builder).
