I suggest to follow the procedure all other optional components use:
- There is no prebuild jar
- The build system checks, if the required jar (JCo.jar) is available.
  Only if this is the case, the source is compiled

This is done for many components, for example the xmldb stuff or
batik etc.

If you need any help here, I can setup the build system for you.

Sounds good! Yes, a new patch would be good, perhaps together
with the above mentioned changes ? ;)
