Have a look at the build.xml file in the "combo" subdirectory of the
jakarta-commons CVS repository -- it lets you do exactly this sort of
thing, and even lets you pick the versions you want (by virtue of
specifying the CVS tags to build with).

I try to maintain the "latest official release" CVS tag of all released
commons packages (but nothing from the sandbox, since by definition they
are not released), but don't always have a chance to do so in a timely
manner -- others are welcome to help.
