Hi Ed,

I'm running into this now.  Something I have discovered in trying to figure out a workaround
for the current buildr is that, while `/usr/libexec/java_home` is supposed to be the supported
way to locate a JVM on OS X, there doesn't seem to be a way to get it to yield the path to
a JDK instead of a JRE.  I found on my system that I need to set JAVA_HOME like so to get
rjb 1.2.5 to compile:

export JAVA_HOME='/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0_22-b04-307.jdk/Contents/Home'

However, creating a JVM still doesn't work.  Allegedly upgrading to rjb-1.3.2 will fix that
problem; I've tried that out with buildr trunk without success.  I've written up a ticket[1]
and will update it if I find a solution.
