1. I want to make a documentation change -remove references to JIKES_HOME in
javac, cover how to switch to JIKES across all build files by setting
ANT_OPTS=-Dbuild.compiler=jikes instead. I can do that tonight.

2. As I filed in bug 3711 last week, we need an extra test in the ftp task
mkdir() routinte to fully support wu-ftp. Either I apply that patch _or_ we
pull the comment about wu-ftp from the java 1.4.1 release and then do the
patch and return the comment about wu-ftp to the 1.5 tree.
