As documented at
MySQL Connector/J really does need JDK 1.4.x to compile. Use of
apache-ant appears to side-step all of the effects of the USE_JAVA
knob from bsd.java.mk, so all previous testing was actually using JDK 1.4.2
to do the compilation step.
Since the distfile contains a pre-compiled .jar file, which will work with
any Java-2 JVM, provide a WITHOUT_BUILD option
I'll take a look, if I can ever get my JDK updated.
