I commenced the RELAX NG validation stuff. For starters
it is doing skinconf.xml

I am not sure where to put it in the build. At the moment
it is in target "init-props". Later we will probably want to
validate other things, so somewhere different may be better.

Also i was not sure whether to put the Jing jar into
lib/optional or lib/core, so i opted for the latter.

Anyway it works.
