Thanks Tim.  I've checked in the manifest changes for auth.

I've also been looking at jndi's dependency on awt (applet).  I think
it's a similar situation, in that none of the applet code is reached
unless the user has actually tried to instantiate an applet (see
so again I don't think we need to do any work here apart from change
the manifest to mark those dependencies as optional.  I will do that
later today unless anyone objects.
