There is a build.xml at the top.  The dependencies might be for
that... but, external dependencies only, we shouldn't include the
released struts jars in the source distro.

I looked at it, and we're still using an old version of the archetype
plugin.  It's just a few lines to get the plugin source included.  One
day maybe we can move to the latest archetype plugin release, but I
there are lots of changes in the descriptor format.
