Hi Jörg, and Robert,

So... what exactly are you suggesting? Switch in to using binaries
instead of building from source paradigm?

Yes. To Bootstrap maven, the work around for this is by: first
generate ANT build.xml via `mvn ant:ant`. maven-bin will provide the
mvn command in this case. Then patch that build.xml to the source.
After that, ANT will take care of the building from source.

If any of you is interested, you are welcome to have a look at the
proposal for Maven from source for Gentoo [1]. Feedback is much
appreciated.
