I think the answer to this is Uwe's suggestion. Set up Maven to do the

I can't promise 100% automation of this in a single top-level maven
build for every possible complex maven-built thing you might want to
patch. I can promise no worse than two steps: (1) run a script that
downloads, patches, and builds the patched items, and (2) run the
regular maven (or ant/ivy) build.  Step (1) puts its results in your
'local repository' (~/.m2/repository) and step 2 uses them there.

For many maven things, I could see how to do this with a maven plugin
folded inside your build, but since I think that would fail in some
cases, I don't think it is wise.
