> The release candidate was prepared using the following software  
> (listed in order of impact on contents of the release):
>
> doxygen 1.4.6
> cpptasks rev 158 installed as 1.0b5.
> Apache Maven 2.0.8
> APR 1.2.11 source unzipped as a sibling to the log4cxx directory.
> APR-Util 1.2.10 source unzipped as a sibling.
> Ubuntu 6.06.1-desktop-i386 (using VM from http://isv-image.ubuntu.com/vmware/)
> gcc 4.0.3
> Sun Java 1.6.0-b105

> release candidate.  The following steps can be used to prepare local

>
> tar -xvzf apr-1.2.11.tar.gz
> mv apr-1.2.11 apr
> tar -xvzf apr-util-1.2.10.tar.gz
> mv apr-util-1.2.10 apr-util
> export PATH=~/apache-maven-2.0.8/bin:$PATH
