It really depends on what you want to do. Personally what I do is create a 
conf/ dir in my .sar file and then any config files (besides those used by 
phoenix) rest in there. 

Everything outside the SAR-INF directory will be extracted into your 
applications home directory (accessible via the BlockContext). So you just 
load the config files from the files relative to app directory.

If you want to use jars in writing Blocks then I would put them in SAR-INF/lib 
but if you want to manually load them (for whatever reason) or create any 
ClassLoaders etc then I would consider moving them into a dir like "lib/" or
