Its not a red herring.  It gets you around the problem because in 1.4.5
I actually hunt down the tools.jar a similar fashion as done
in Ant when running the jspc complier from there. i.e.:

<taskdef classname="org.apache.jasper.JspC" name="jasper2" >
            <pathelement location="${java.home}/../lib/tools.jar"/>

I have to duplicate that in code.  That's why 1.4.5 works.

The release is under vote.  So far no -1s.  I think I will be able to
release it today as the 72 hours is up.  I'll let this list know when I
have released it.
