Should be no need to modify the build file, the compiler can be  
controlled by the -Dbuild.compiler switch on the Ant command and  
appropriate setting of the PATH and/or JAVA_HOME.   It would be  
undesirable to hard-code a particular compiler choice in the build file.

Jikes seemed to be the simplest way to tweak your configuration, but  
using the JDK 1.2 or 1.1 compiler or building the whole thing on JDK  
1.1 or 1.2 (requiring a rebuilt Ant and assembly of things like JAXP  
that are built into later JVM's) should also work.  I was just  
looking for the minimum possible change to your configuration to  
avoid losing something like the JMSAppender due to a configuration  

When you do decide what one of the multiple options you use to , it  
would be good if you could tell us how you built it.

Probably worthwhile looking at the recently filed: http:// 
issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=36213.  The issues raised  
appear also to affect 1.2.12rc3.
