Regarding 2. At the moment you can build MR following the instructions
in the INSTALL file. In fact the nightly build set up by Giri and
Mahadev builds a MR tarball
There are some JIRAs to remove the inconsistencies with the rest of
the build, such as MAPREDUCE-3024, MAPREDUCE-3014, HADOOP-7590,
HADOOP-7642. I hope to work on some of these soon, but any help is
always appreciated.
