We're all newbies at some point, so don't worry about that :)

There's your problem, I suspect, as I don't think anyone has tried using 
GCJ.

While you should be able to self-host now using the J9 evaluation VM 
from IBM, others have noted it might be easier if you just go get the 
distro from Sun or BEA and start with that while you come up to speed.

Yes, you can use IntelliJ - everyone can use the tools that are best for 
them, and the project will remain IDE neutral. :)

As for the default ant target, you should run that to build the native 
libraries.  We've been talking about making a development kit available 
that has those precompiled, but I think it's worth your while getting it 
to build from top to bottom at least once.

Welcome, and thanks for volunteering :)
