(patch) no useful error message when M2_HOME is misconfigured during bootstrap
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: MNG-2560
                 URL: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MNG-2560
             Project: Maven 2
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Bootstrap & Build
    Affects Versions: 2.1
            Reporter: Dan Fabulich
         Attachments: patch.txt

Run the bootstrap build, but configure M2_HOME to be some random directory "foo".  The tests
will fail as maven will be installed into foo/../maven-2.1-SNAPSHOT, but then configured to
actually use "foo" as the execution directory.

The attached patch modifies the BootstrapInstaller to accept a "destDir" instead of a "prefix",
and then double-checks that the destDir is a validly named destination before actually running
the build.  This allows the build to fail clearly and fast when this common configuration
error is made.  The README is also updated to highlight more clearly that you *must* M2_HOME
correctly in order for the build to work.
