1.2 is the default target for most things that I am using. The exception 
being Phoenix which uses the jdk1.3 proxies and framework that can optionally 
build a JDK1.4 Logger if JDK1.4 present. 

Is there any other jdk dependencies ?

Which particular bit is that? The excalibur jars all place the LICENSE.txt in 
META-INF/, phoenix no longer distributes non-Apache jars.

Some of the other jars that we are using and should not be or should add 
license for by the end of the 90 day grace period;

Ones we just need to add licenses for;
jakarta-avalon/tools/lib/junit.jar (IBM Common license)
jakarta-avalon/tools/lib/junitperf.jar (BSD license)
jakarta-avalon/tools/lib/rhino.jar (Mozilla license)
jakarta-avalon/tools/lib/bsf.jar (IBM Common License)
jakarta-avalon-apps/db/lib/bsf.jar (IBM Common License)
jakarta-avalon-apps/db/lib/js.jar (Mozilla license)
jakarta-avalon-apps/hsql/lib/hsqldb.jar (???)

Ones we need to remove;
jakarta-avalon/tools/ext/resolver.jar (in xml-commons now anyway)

Ones we need to investigate;

I plan to write a task that automagically generates a manifest that declares 
dependencies on other jars via the standard "Optional Packages" mechanism 
(previously known as "Extension" mechanism). Actually I have already written 
it .. just needs time to dcecouple it from the project it was used in and add 
it into ant ;)
