I agree that someone will always ask... and we just point them to the  
URL with the docs.

No need to automate anything to complain... I'm not even sure how I  
would go about doing that.  I think it is fine to force Java 1.4 and  
kill the build early if its not what we need... but I think the  
directory name where you build from is a bit more user specific  

I'd lean on the documentation here for these windows-specific  
issues... or unless you are saying that windows users can't ready :- 
P  Do we need to make a little dancing paper clip animation to annoy  
our users into reading the docs... or maybe even read it to them?
