The Apache Foundation's list of resolved legal questions states that
CPL 1.0-licensed dependencies may be included in binary form:

http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html#category-b

as long as it is clearly labelled.

Also, this answer suggests that even tools under 'prohibited' licenses
may be used if they're just part of the build and not actually
distributed with your project:

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

I'm just a lurker and not a Java developer, so don't know if that
helps in this case, but thought it worth sharing just in case. Might
also be worth asking the legal-discuss mailing list about the issue?

Cheers,
Chris Mear
