Sounds right to the point.  

This is kind of a known problem with optional tasks that need external
jars and allow for a nested classpath element - <junit> has the same
problem if you want to include junit.jar in the tasks classpath
element instead of the system classpath for example.

What probably would work in your case: remove TraxLiaison from
optional.jar and include it in the classpath you specify for the task.
