Compiler errors when building GATK core while gsea2-2.0.12.jar in CLASSPATH

Hi, this took me a while to debug, so I'm posting the solution here.
I started by downloading a clean copy of GATK core platform from GitHub. When I first tried building by running ant, I got the compiler errors below. The reason turned out to be that an unrelated jar (gsea2-2.0.12.jar) was on my CLASSPATH (this is from another Broad tool I've been using - Gene Set Enrichment Analysis). gsea2-2.0.12.jar apparently contains outdated versions of apache math and io packages which conflict with the GATK versions. Taking this jar off my CLASSPATH fixed the issue.

Ps. the compiler errors were:
