Comment 3 Patrice Clement gentoo-dev 2015-04-04 00:49:11 UTC
From version 2.x onwards, log4j requires Apache Maven:

# pwd
# cat BUILDING.txt 
Building Log4j 2
To build Log4j 2, you need a JDK implementation version 1.6 or greater, and Apache Maven.
Note that building the site requires Maven 3.0.5, while everything else works
fine with any version of Maven 3.


How do we work around this constraint?
