Stefan, one thing I do not understand: If the nightly build is automated
don't you want these JARS to be placed on CVS somewhere so that we do not
on just ONE machine having the right stuff. Why would we administer
these JARS from outside of CVS?

I suggest having them on CVS on a separate directory: thirdparty.
Add a target, install3rd, to ANT's build.xml that installs the third 
party stuff and that is not executed by the default installer.

This is simple, it is unintrusive for those who do not want to use
the prebuild modules and it simplifies things for the rest of use who
hate to go shopping for JARs all over the web to get to use things.
