This command has been useful in getting it to go.. particualarly the 
itest portion of it for openejb.

maven -Dmaven.test.skip=true -Dmaven.itest.skip=true

Also, throw in a '-o' (offline), then simply cd into the module that 
fails (assuming it failed because of a dependency download problem), 
build it on its own with the '-o', then try to rebuild the whole thing 
without the '-o'.
