As previously mentioned, all the files appear to have leading blank lines.
These should be removed.

The README file says:

"Apache ManifoldCF is a multi-repository crawler framework, with
multiple connectors,
under incubation."

This is insufficient as an incubation disclaimer.
However I suggest the reference to incubation is removed, and a
separate DISCLAIMER file created.

See for example:
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/empire-db/trunk/DISCLAIMER.txt

Also, I think the NOTICEs at the end ot the README belong in the LICENSE file.

As an entirely separate issue, the README says that the project has to
be built before use, and explains that one needs to download Java and
Ant.
If that is the case, why not include a download section in the build
file which fetches all the dependencies?

Or at least have an Ant target that copies the jar files to the
correct directories, and update the binary package to include a single
copy of each only.
