One option could be to go the Eclipse way, the way they handle SWT
distributions which have native components[1]. Thinking more about it,
that might even be a better option given that the different binary
components may need to be built on different OSes.

And from a consumption standpoint, if the user is using Maven, they
could use profiles to select the correct dependency. I have done
something like this for SWT on a project:

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.eclipse.swt</groupId>
    <artifactId>${swt.artifact}</artifactId>
    <version>${eclipse.swt.version}</version>
    <scope>compile</scope>
</dependency>

<profile>
    <id>win64_x8664</id>
    <activation>
        <os>
            <family>windows</family>
            <arch>x86_64</arch>
        </os>
    </activation>
    <properties>
        <swt.artifact>swt-win32-win32-x86_64</swt.artifact>
    </properties>
</profile>
<profile>
    <id>linux64_x8664</id>
    <activation>
        <os>
            <family>unix</family>
            <arch>x86_64</arch>
        </os>
    </activation>
    <properties>
        <swt.artifact>swt-gtk-linux-x86_64</swt.artifact>
    </properties>
</profile>
