The report builder extension was and is more or less a separated component in 
our project. The source code for this extension is directly located inside our 
main source code repository. The libraries which have been removed and on which 
this extension is relying on had to be removed due to their licenses.
This only means that this extension can only be build inside our project, if you 
install these libraries on your own on your system and use the corresponding 
configure options for these libraries.
The extension itself - provided in an extension repository or copied from a 
friend or ... - should be working, but as far as I know it is also relying on Java.

Best regards, Oliver.
