I don't really know much about gump but I'm interested to learn a
little more about it.  I'm doing some builds local so I should be able
to help with the details we'd need to get it going.  Hopefully
HARMONY-39 will be committed by the time we get things set up.

In our builds the ant recipe for completing the Harmony + VME tree is
as follows:

  <target name="copy-depends">
    <echo>Copying VME to ${root}</echo>
    <copy todir="${root}/jre/bin/default/" overwrite="true">
      <fileset dir="${vme.root}/deploy/jre/bin/default/" />

    <echo>Copying XML jars to jre/lib/boot</echo>
    <copy todir="${root}/jre/lib/boot/" overwrite="true">
      <fileset dir="${depend.dir}">
        <include name="resolver.jar" />
        <include name="xalan.jar" />
        <include name="xercesImpl.jar" />
        <include name="xml-apis.jar" />

    <!-- This jar has been unsigned.  I did this on unix with:
             zip -d /tmp/bcprov.jar META-INF/BCKEY.SF
    <echo>Copying bouncycastle jar to jre/lib/ext</echo>
    <copy todir="${root}/jre/lib/ext/" overwrite="true">
      <fileset dir="${depend.dir}">
        <include name="bcprov.jar" />

I've not tested it but I think with Tim's change in r386171 the XML jars should
already be present in the right place so that part can be removed.

I'll describe a little more about the builds I'm running in a separate note.
