Latest builds for all languages are now uploading (I'll do it in small 
batches, not as a whole) to
This is the full Linux-64 (DEBs, RPMs, language packs) stack. I'm 
uploading it just as a performance test. Server performance was much 
better than the one I remembered for 4.1.2, then it dropped for a while 
but it's still better than it used to be. Of course is 
not meant for hosting dev builds, but SVN ("dist") would be worse since 
it's useless to store 15 GBytes of data per day in SVN, knowing that no 
RC will come out of it.

I confirm there is an "ant17" package in the official CentOS 5 
repositories (added in CentOS 5.9). It provides ant 1.7.1. I haven't 
tried building with it. If it works, this would allow us to avoid any 
manually downloaded dependencies and the CentOS 5 recipe would be 
completely clean.

Confirmed. I've checked the configure script and indeed --with-stlport 
is no longer supported. So --without-stlport is the default (and 
actually the only possible option).

It does make a difference at build time, and in 4.1.2 we had JUnit 4:

; though, it may well be possible that this only affect build-time tests 
and it does not affect the final build. In this case, we can do without 
JUnit 4 (which is not provided by any CentOS packages).
