-RE: Why is hadoop build I generated from a release branch different from release build?
ant -p (not for 0.23+) will tell you the available build targets.
Use mvn (maven) for 0.23 or newer

The complete way releases are built (for v0.20/v1.0) is documented at
However, that does a bunch of stuff you don't need, like generate the documentation and do a ton of cross-checks.
The full set of ant build targets are defined in build.xml in the top level of the source code tree.
"binary" may be the target you want.
