This file needs to be removed from CVS, and your build process changed.

The Jakarta PMC and the Apache Board are currently in a process of
removing checked-in JAR files for which the license to do so disallows it,
and that includes this one.  The problem is that checking it in to CVS
makes the file available for individual download -- in violation of the
redistribution requirements of the license.

It is acceptable to make your build process dependent upon JARs like this
(Tomcat uses this one too).  It is acceptable to ship this particular
JAR as part of a distribution (Tomcat does that as well).  It's not
acceptable to check it in.
