This must be caused by your local gradle installation being a different 
version than the one we use for Zest.
Using ./gradlew enforce that you use the same Gradle version as 
everybody working on Zest.
Some changes have been made into Gradle around Scala compilation lately.
I'll have a look at upgrading our build to the latest Gradle.

Long story short, as long as you use ./gradlew everything should build!
