This is known issue in RHEL.
See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1381883

It won't help with the issue you are facing because xmvn (which is part
of RHEL) would still use ASM 3.


And, I can't override that with CLASSPATH= or anything like that with xmvn?
Does that mean the only option is to wait for RedHat to eventually update to 5? Or, is there another option?
