Ok, this looks pretty simple, but, unfortunately, it only addresses the 
issues when running/building Geronimo.  I'm running into a problem 
trying to get the unit tests to run while building openejb2.  I've been 
trying to find the equivalent touch points in the openejb2 build, and 
have not had much success.  I'm definitely skating on thin ice (not good 
for a person of my size :-) ) when it comes to the m2 stuff, so I'd 
appreciate any help/pointers I can get on this.
