I don't know all the implications, but it seems to me that you should
*not* specify the compiler in the build.{xml,properties} files.  Just
use whatever the system provides.  On at least both Fedora and Cygwin it
is possible to switch Java using the alternatives program (as
superuser).  And you should be able to change your $PATH to switch
