For anyone else following this thread, I've also just discovered the 
package resolver. If you are looking for a way to replicate a build 
environment reliably without having to ship these downloaded jars 
yourself, then the package resolver looks like a nice solution.

I'm currently setting all this up for a CI environment, so installing 
previously downloaded jars into the repo as per Kirby's response seems 
the most reliable solution for me. :o)

But I am also looking to add an Ivy file to an Open-Source project I 
contribute to, and the package resolver looks like the better solution 
for that.
