To follow up here -- in 0.2 there were few external dependencies which were
managed/deployed internally within the mahout project because they were not
available in any other maven repository. These were given a groupId under
the mahout triple to avoid conflicts with the actual library should it ever
be officially deployed.

There are a bunch of libraries that hadoop depends on that are really
unnecessary -- things like kosmofs (kfs?) and jets3t provide filesystem
layer alternatives to hdfs. These were included directly in the 0.2 release,
and had been transitively included in the 0.3 release via the current hadoop
0.20.2 SNAPSHOT dependency -- these had to be excluded explicitly in the
parent pom (maven/pom.xml) currently in HEAD.

I do not believe that kfs is needed to build or run mahout. It is an
optional runtime dependency brought in by hadoop. There are a couple other
libraries like this that are excluded in the dependency management section
of the parent pom in HEAD for the hadoop depedency.
