It seems the author used some illegal constructs; I'm not sure what he meant
so I'll send the error messages instead.

    [javac] Compiling 678 source files to /home/zander/sources/java/mauve/build

I don't think these 'static' modifiers are needed in the first place; but why were
they added?

Second; I found at least one directory that contains java files without a
package; leading it to be uncompilable (due to duplicate class names)
I found:
Should those have package lines??

Oh; I did not want to imply mauve can't run on a RedHat server; my intent
was to let you know of the problems. And since I could not imagine being 
the first to notice them I added a suggestion in case the pages on RedHat's
servers were not available to the project members.
Anyway;  Please make the project seem 'less dead' to the passing eye!!

I noticed that the patch does not cleanly apply anymore; here is a new diff.
