AFAIK, other apache projects require sun jars to compile. You may ask 
commons-dbcp commiters that seem to have the same requirement :
    <!-- Note JDBC 2.0 is a pain, because it must be manually
         downloaded to your Maven repository, and it's not even
         required on JDK 1.4.  Maybe we should remove it from
         this dependency list so Maven doesn't choke?
