Let me add to it before Dave wakes up :)

The maven plugin expects the Geronimo-specific libraries, and 
(fortunatelly) Maven takes care of it, i.e. it'll download them when 
required (unlike Ant). That's how I understood the Dave's "fortunatelly".

I don't know how exactly a plugin tells Maven what it needs, but in our 
build configuration, during the build Maven looks at 
modules/maven-plugin/project.xml and downloads the dependencies 
(declared as <dependencies/>). Therefore, once the build is done, the 
libs are in their place, ready to be used by the plugin.
