I am attempting a build of WebTest on a MB Pro with 2Gb memory and Java 5
installed. I am getting the following build errors, building on command line
or within IntelliJ.

     [echo] compile base classes
    [javac] Compiling 216 source files to

I looked in xalan-2.7.0-src.jar, and found the supposed undefined method
installFunction. So, do I have a classpath issue somehow? I am building with
webtest clean develop as per the instructions. I followed the instructions
on the website for building, checking out from svn in WEBTEST_HOME. The
instructions imply that you can do the build from WEBTEST_HOME, however the
build file is checked out from the repository into the webtest subdirectory.
Unless I am doing something wrong, the instructions do not work as written:

To generate a complete release, including the documentation, type:
bin/webtest.sh full

Can someone please help with this build?
