Was that last change to 1.6 necessary? It makes building with a gcj that
doesn't support the 1.6 target classes impossible (like on fedora 8).

I tested on Fedora 8 and Fedora 9 with that last change reverted (and
explicitly marking -source 1.5 in - -source 1.6 isn't
actually a valid/meaningful value since there were no java language
changes between 1.5 and 1.6). And it build fine now on both platform. So
for now I have made this change:

        * Use -source 1.5 whenever possible.
        * Regenerated.
        * Use -1.5.

Please let us on older platforms know if you really need to upgrade to
1.6 for some reason, then we can see if we can find some solution for
making the build work when using a 1.5 only runtime.
