I downloaded the source, and tried a naive build on Windows XP, Cygwin. 
I put a JDK 1.5 bin directory at the start of my path, and ran "ant 
all.build". It failed with the following errors:

     [javac] Compiling 1993 source files to C:\Documents and 
     [javac] C:/Documents and Settings/Administrator/My

(I'm not worried about the deprecated APIs, just the compile failures.)

I next tried to find instructions. I looked at 
src-doc/static/build.html. It says "The bin directory of the Java(TM) 2 
SDK, Standard Edition, v 1.4 (or later) must be in your executable 
search path."

I believe we now need 1.5 or later.
