I think someone has to revise the rules that the build file uses to
decide if something can be build or not without a particular package.

My case in point is <wlstart> <wlstop>. The build indicates
that it requires the weblogic jars, but if you look at the code
it seems that all it does is calling the correct class name using
<java>. There is no reason tfor this tasks not to be provided
as part of the nightly builds, let alone betas.

In amasement, I found that other tasks like <ejbjar> (including 
<weblogic> subelement) are provided as part of nightly builds.

Yes, in binary tarball but no more as a separate
jar. I used to make the rpm building core ant
from source and installing after the optional jar.

The suggestion was to split optional in free/non-free
package. I could build the majority of optional but
still lack commercials products api to make build them.

So if I release a rpm, it will be with a partial optional
jar and you'll get users complaining about 'incorrect rpm'.
