I'm trying to learn my way around the java client libraries for

example programs to see how their behavior changes.
However, I had trouble compiling the java libraries. Whenever I ran
'ant' it blew up on the third step (amqp-generate). I *could*
successfully run the tests from the binary download of the client libs.
Here's a pastie with the output of the failed compilation attempt:

This is because in the source directory there is a file called BUILD

lowercase build directory.
I recommend the BUILD file be renamed to README or somesuch.
