I haven't investigated this deeply at the time, but the hsqldb module 
has a mix of line endings (that led to a broken patch too) and uses 
CONVERTFILES in to harmonize them.

121754 is fixed. 121690 is more generic; I confirm that after fixing 
121754 I had no problems in building with Java 7, so it might be that 
HSQLDB was the only problem. But I only tried with some "standard" build 
options. Namely, I didn't try with --with-junit or similar, and Kay 
reported issues with that.

As far as I know, this would be a significant limitation. We can now 
build with Java 5, 6 or 7 and the build can work with Java 5, 6 or 7 
(regardless of the version used for building). Restricting this would 
require discussion, especially on less common platforms.
