thanks for your support, especially the improvements of the m2 build.

I usually build with maven 1 on a JDK 1.3. The site contains some 
information about how to build with this constellation (the "building" 
link). No idea why the manifest has an entry about ant.

With the source/target declarations in I have a 
problem: javac from JDK 1.3 does not understand the source option and 
causes an error. This is the reason why these flags were not set before. 
Do you know a workaround for this issue?

Because of the changes that have been made at the build files I plan to 
create another RC soon.
