I had a feeling that might have been the case, but I too don't remember 
even discussion of requiring 1.5 at any point so I figured I must be wrong.

And I can confirm that switching to java5 works, got a successful build 
now... actually, I have java6 installed so I used that, but I assume 
java5 would work too.
