IMPALA-3221, we should ensure that the code in git.apache.org builds! This includes:
- Ensuring that all binary dependencies are both included in the toolchain and mentioned on the wiki page for people who want to build without the toolchain.
- Adding instructions to the Apache Impala wiki about building in both cases.
- Making sure the frontend builds without access to Cloudera infrastructure (see below)
I do think we should move the frontend away from CDH dependencies in the short term, but if they can be accessed without being inside Cloudera's network, I think it's ok not to solve that problem in this JIRA (as moving to ASF dependencies might open up a lot of compilation and runtime headaches).
