I think B is ok, but we must at least try to deal with the
common case where the user downloads/installs various
binary packages.

Say /usr/lib/java, with each package beeing unziped there,
similar with what is required for tomcat build. The same
build.properties file could be 'reused' at runtime,
by reading it from the shell script or starter and adding
the classes to the loader.

Just an idea - I'm not volunteering :-)
