You aren't stating very clearly the steps you are using.  I hope you  
are checking out the source from subversion.  One thing that is  
pretty much essential is to run

maven m:co

to check out openejb source code: it is very difficult to build  
geronimo using openejb binaries.

After checking out geronimo and openejb,

maven new

should build everything.  I haven't tried with an empty maven repo  
recently, but I have occasionally in the past, and while it usually  
takes a long time I have not experienced frequent failures.  If you  
look at the mailing lists you can see that may people are having  
problems downloading dependencies from ibiblio etc.

Trying lots of times seems to help some people.  If you run into a  
problem that is not ibiblio being flaky, be sure to post it:  
otherwise more specific info might help anway.
