Which functionality is it? If an old compiler is truly required at all,
it can only be to generate code to run in an old JVM.

Since FreeBSD stopped offering java-1.5 long ago, this can not possibly
be a concern... And, of course, even a modern javac can be asked to
generate 1.5-compatible byte code.

None of these changes would be particularly /pleasant/ -- I, personally,
am always revolted by the innards of a pom.xml or build.xml -- but they
ought to be /possible/...
