I will try to remember to shoot you a heads up when I do. It will be the
build.xml that you want. But really they are not bad to make, feel free
to try yourself.

Nada, I am downstream, no contributions from me to upstream yet. I hope
to in the future, but need the time and possible the skillz ;)

My focus these days is on 6.0.x. I hope you are wanting to build a 6.0.x
Jasper. As I doubt I will be packaging a 5.5.x jasper, and I believe
there was a jasper specific build xml with the 5.5.x branch. It's been a
bit since I last dug in sources so can't recall from memory at this
