Well, Weblogic is available for Linux. If I install Ant from an RPM, the 
weblogic related tasks should be available so long as I have the 
necessary third part libraries.

There is a difference between the dependencies required for an install 
and the dependencies which can be utilised, if available at runtime. 
Things in the optional jar are generally runtime options, not 
install-time options.
