Another quick update.
AWSAPI stuff has largely been cleaned.

the rampart-libs stuff is still there, but isn't necessary for building.

Currently the remaining jars in deps are:
XenServerJava (GPL licensed and a local fork of the code.) - Waiting
on an appropriately licensed version of this.
axis2-ant-plugin (the awsapi has a taskdef that hits before the
dependency is downloaded - I need to fix this still)
hibernate3 (L/GPL - supposedly disappearing any time now.

using 'ant resolveBuildDeps clean-all build-all works - though LOTS of
CloudStack is disabled by default in the deps-ctrl branch.

Hopefully in the next day or so this will get better. If you are
interested in helping, please don't hesitate to jump in.
