This tastes like you need to checkout the commons-build as well...
For some reason, web-site and documentation are the same thing (maybe  
that should be tackled) so that it tries to build the web-site for the  
distribution which involves common things in jakarta-commons...
Indeed it shows a bone...

well sure, that's just the source bin...

Try running "maven pack-fat-jar", this will create target/fatjelly.jar,  
an 8Mb archive which is a merge of all the jars needed in order to run  
jelly with the taglibs:  
it,jsl,log,swing,threads,util,validate,velocity,xml, and xmlunit.

This doesn't make a jelly command but you can make your own as it is a  
"double-clickable-jar" (well, Usage: jelly [scriptFile] [-script  
scriptFile -o outputFile -Dsysprop=syspropval])

Hope that helps.
Indeed, a bug should be filed about the inappropriateness of the dist  
dependency on the commons-build.
