Yes, the reason fot this is very simple. On F18 we had a jdk-1.6.0 environment in
addition to the jdk-1.7.0. Scala was built explicitly agains jdk-1.6.0 because jdk-1.7.0
is not supported on this release.

Fedora 19 and late doesn't provides a jdk-1.6.0 environment which is the reason
for the broken dependency. So it's impossible to build scala-2.9.x for F19 or
later releases for Fedora.
