Default Asian 5 Spice ingredients

I have noticed that many Brethren use 5 spice powder in their cooking(see PatioDaddio's recent rib cook for example- so I am wondering just which 5 spices are in the mix that you use?
I use a mix from Fiesta Co-op that contains the following-

Star Anise
White pepper

The cinnamon, star anise and cloves dominate this mix, the fennel and white pepper do not show up much at all IMHO.
So, what are the spices in your 5 spice powder?
Does anyone mix their own and are you willing to share?
