Which it seems to do in the JDK 1.5 builds (otherwise it would have
the same problems there as well).

We use -Xbootclasspath for xml-apis to ensure our version gets used,
maybe this doesn't work for Kaffe?  Or just not using Jikes?  I'll
probably need some -verbose output to be sure.

Harmless and happens in all the other builds as well (only that nobody
complains about it).  From Xalan's build.xml:

    <!-- Set build.boot.class.path to a JDK 1.1.x file to check
         compatibility with 1.1.x.  If you omit this property, compatability
         with 1.1.x will not be checked even though javac specifies a target of 1.1 -->

Why don't I see any result pages on brutus ATM?  Ahh, the last Ant
build took more than an hour and was killed.  Any idea why?

Maybe turning off -deprecated will help.  I'll give it a try.

If that doesn't help, -nowarn will be a more drastic approach which
can get controlled via a magic Ant property.

Page is not there, but any Ant build will certainly need some kind of
XML parser.  I'll add Xerces.
