We've seen this issue on Fedora 10 and 11.

Can we not just blacklist 1.7.1 as suggested in the bug? Personally,
you may not want to move to 1.7.0 but forcing 1.8 is going to be
difficult as it's not yet in enough distros. That said, by the time
this filters through to OpenJDK6, it may be.
Is there no way of working around 1.7.1 on our side?

GNU Make 3.81

So pretty old in computing terms.

Picking up some random binary from the web is not possible for
building distro packages. Ant 1.8 needs to be packaged and available
as a dependency.
As I said, the issue may be moot by the time this filters through to
something actually being packaged though. For OpenJDK6, I think it
should wait until after the next build drop (b19) and go in b20.
