In the ebuild it is a simple matter to include other dependencies or
not based on the user's preference. If I were to allow the inclusion
of the jakarta-regexp package would I just have to add a "--classpath
{path to jakarta-regexp.jar}/regexp.jar" to the --build and --install
portions, or do you think that would work? Would I need to use
--include instead? or perhaps --exclude those particular classes?
