The "something simpler" is called an INSTALL(.txt) file, in which you
write that the project depends on Junit and emma, which can be
downloaded from so-and-so and placed over-there in the source tree.

I notice that Junit and emma are both category-B per

http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html

so you can use them (given the restrictions in that resolution), but if
you're worried about obfuscation then do not include them in your
release tarball.
