[tei-council] Interpreting errors resulting from TEI build

Hi there,

If this is the latest equivalent output from Jenkins:


then I'm puzzled. It shows no errors or warnings at all. My build is 
based on a fresh checkout from SVN, followed by "cd trunk/P5", then 
"make". Since Jenkins should also be working from the latest source, 
it's difficult to see why the results would be different. But I don't 
know what "the global attribute trap" is, so maybe there's something 
specific that needs to be done to make the checked-out source work properly.

Can someone else who has a working build environment (Piotr or Kevin, 
perhaps) run a build and see if you get the same errors as me?
