Building River on Windows (XP) and running the QA tests works fine ... No
new ground is being broken there.

There are a couple things to watch out for, though:
1. make sure the JDK you are using is installed in a path without spaces
(e.g. C:\Java)
2. make sure you checkout River in a path without spaces (e.g.
3. make sure the Ant you are using is using the JDK from (1) -> you can run
"ant diagnostics" in the project directory to find out
4. when using an IDE to build, make sure this IDE runs on the JDK from (1) -
you can configure this for Netbeans in <netbeans_home>/etc/netbeans.conf -
and the Ant from (3)

Especially running the QA test suite will not work when the above is not
taken into account.

But if it is, you'll see:
