Support for using the newer versions of hsqldb is in the Hg branch in the
older Oracle repository. Unfortuantely there was something very broken
there so we didn't import it for AOO 3.4. The code needs reviewing.

Configure can be instructed to use pre-built versions of most tools.

In FreeBSD we use something like this:
--with-system-lucene \
--with-lucene-core-jar=${JAVALIBDIR}/lucene-core-3.6.1.jar    \

However, you must make sure that you are using a version that is
compatible with the one we carry. We may have to update lucene's
support to be able to use the new versions (I opened BZ issue
121457 with some comments from the Lucene core guys about that).

Dmake is a build tool that we don't maintain in Apache and we hope to
deprecate one day..
