I've committed the HADOOP-7468 patch to build.xml to stop 
conf/log4.properties going into the JAR to trunk.

There's a separate patch for the 0.20.204 release, which I'd argue for 
  1. It doesn't impact the server code
  2. It breaks any app downstream that wants its own log4j. To be 
precise, it causes inconsistent behaviour depending on the classpath 

This change isn't going to impact any of the hadoop scripts -including 
client side ones- that have a the conf/ dir on the classpath.
