Why prevent others from building Report Builder?

We don't build the JFree Report stuff anyway, to build the Report 
Builder you have to provide the pre-built jars. Currently they are 
pulled automatically from ext_src, but we could change that to pulling 
it from "external" like other stuff and throw errors in case the jars 
aren't there and the switch for building Report Builder is used. So 
someone who wants to build it just needs to copy the jars to 
external/jfreereport or so.
